GBP/JPY holds onto recovery gains from the short-term key support confluence.
A two-week-old rising trend line, 61.8% Fibonacci add to the downside barriers.
GBP/JPY stays mildly positive while taking the bids to 143.37 during Wednesday’s Asian session. The pair recently bounced off 200-bar SMA and 50% Fibonacci retracement of its current month’s upside.
As a result, buyers are now looking towards the weekly high surrounding 143.70 as an immediate resistance ahead of targeting 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level around 144.00.
Should there be a clear run-up beyond 144.00, the monthly top and an ascending trend line from December 31, 2019, close to 145.00, will be important to watch.
Alternatively, the pair’s declines below 142.95/90 support confluence can take the rest on the short-term support line, at 142.70 prior to challenging the 142.45 support comprising 61.8% Fibonacci retracement.
