GBP/JPY daily chart
On the daily chart, the GBP/JPY cross currency pair has risen sharply after breaking the strong long-time resistance barrier near the 152.90-153.00 zone. Now, the descending trendline from May’s high at 156.07 exerts some downward pressure on the pair. If the price sustains above the intraday high, it could easily move toward 156.07.
Furthermore, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator holds within the overbought zone. Any uptick in the MACD would bring 2018 highs near 156.61 on the bull’s radar.
On the reverse side, the spot would meet the 154.40 horizontal support level and then Tuesday’s low at 153.68. The GBP/JPY bears would then approach the 153.00 psychological mark on the additional weakness.
