GBP/JPY has bullish momentum
Information is not investment advice
GBP/JPY has formed a higher low, retraced 50% of the February-March decline, closed above 134.40 on Wednesday and is trading above the March high. The pair seems to possess positive momentum. The logical upside target is at 136.90 (61.8% Fibo). Support lies at 134.40 and 133.70. As long as the pound is trading above the latter, the bullish movement will be the main scenario. The decline below 133.70 will open the way down to the 132.00 area.
