GBPJPY Spikes to Over One-Month Tops

A sustained move beyond the key 145.00 psychological mark was seen as a key trigger for the bulls, especially after an overnight bullish break through a short-term descending trend-line resistance.

 A follow-through up-move beyond 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the 149.31-139.90 downfall further reinforces a near-term bullish breakout and increase prospects for additional gains. 

However, technical indicators on hourly charts have started moving into overbought territory and might turn out to be the only factor keeping a lid on any further up-move ahead of the UK monthly jobs data.
