FXstreet.com (Córdoba) - The GBP/USD is taking a breather Friday, having stabilized above the 200-hour SMA, after retreating sharply from a fresh 2-year high of 1.6600 scored the previous day.

Amid profit taking and weighed by solid US data, the GBP/USD pulled back from the 1.6600 area and settled in a range just above 1.6420 Friday, where it has spent the last sessions. The pair remained little changed even after the latest string of UK data showed mortgage approvals hit a 5-year high while construction PMI came in slightly above expectations.
