GBP/USD Technical Analysis: 100-hour SMA continues to cap the immediate upside

• The pair held on to its positive tone through the early North-American session, albeit continued with its struggle to build on the momentum further beyond 100-hour SMA.

• Meanwhile, mixed technical indicators on hourly/daily charts haven't been supportive of any firm direction and hence, any subsequent up-move is more likely to remain capped.

• The top end of a short-term descending trend-channel, currently near the key 1.30 psychological mark, should keep a lid any subsequent up-move beyond the mentioned hurdle.
