GBP/JPY is expected to trade with bullish outlook. The pair has pulled back on its horizontal support at 151.65, and is likely to post a new rebound. The relative strength index is also turning up, which should confirm a positive outlook. In addition, both the 20-period and 50-period moving averages are heading upward. Therefore, as long as 152.05 holds on the downside, look for a new rise to 153.00 and 153.40 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.
