analytics5ae06d1dca47c.png

Our first upside targets which we predicted in yesterday's analysis has been hit. GBP/JPY is still on the upside and looking to post some further upside gains. The pair is posting some consolidations after the recent strong rebound but is still bullish above its horizontal support at 151.65. The relative strength index is mixed to bullish and calls for caution. In which case, as long as 151.65 holds on the downside, look for a limited consolidation before further advance to 152.65 and 153 in extension.

Fundamentally:

The British pound marked a day-low of US$1.3916, its lowest intraday level since March 19, before rebounding to close at US$1.3975, up 0.3% on the day and snapping a five-session losing streak. The currency was boosted by a revised 44 billion-pound bid by Japan's Takeda Pharmaceutical for London-listed drugmaker Shire.
