    The GBP/USD pair recovered from the low of 1.4452, but stays weak on the day as the USD bulls made a comeback after upbeat unemployment rate and wage growth figures.

    Weekly gain a done deal

    The spot has trimmed gains following the US data, but nevertheless appears on track for a weekly gain. At 1.4503, the pair is well above the weekly opening price of 1.4242. Cable clocked a high of 1.4668 after BOE surprised markets with its slightly hawkish tone on Thursday.

    However, the gains were trimmed slow and steady ahead of the payrolls release. Further losses were seen after wage data release, part of which has been taken back as of now.

    GBP/USD Technical Levels

    The immediate resistance is seen at 1.4519-1.4516 (38.2% of 1.5230-1.4079 + 23.6% of 1.5930-1.4079), above which the spot could target 1.4577 (hourly 50-MA). On the other hand, a break below 1.4452 (daily low) could see prices drop to 1.4392 (hourly 200-MA).
