    FXStreet (Córdoba) - GBP/USD came under renewed pressure and printed fresh 2-week lows as the greenback advanced following the latest series of US data.

    GBP/USD pierced below the 1.5250 support zone and slid to a low of 1.5241 before finding support and recovering slightly as investors continue to assess US GDP and jobless claims readings. At time of writing, the pair is trading at 1.5260, virtually unchanged on the day.

    US gross domestic product
    grew by 1.5% in the third quarter, according to the first estimate, slightly below the 1.6% of consensus. Separated data showed initial jobless claims rose by 1,000 to 260K in the week ended Oct 23 but below the 265K expected.
