GBP/USD Clings to Gains, Just Below Mid-1.2200s Post-UK Macro Data

The GBP/USD pair maintained its bid tone through the early European session on Thursday, albeit eased a bit from session tops in reaction to mixed UK macro data.

Having shown some resilience below the 1.2200 round-figure mark for the third straight session, the pair managed to regain positive traction on Thursday and was being supported by the prevalent US Dollar selling bias.

The positive momentum, however, lacked any strong follow-through and met with some fresh supply after the UK monthly GDP report showed that the economy unexpectedly contracted by 0.1% in August.

Adding to this, the UK manufacturing and industrial production contracted more-than-expected in August, though was partly offset by slightly lower-than-expected trade deficit figures for the same month.

 It will now be interesting to see if the pair is able to capitalize on the positive move or once again fizzles out at higher levels amid persistent uncertainties surrounding Britain's exit from the European Union.
