  • GBP/JPY is taking the bids around 146.10 around Tokyo open on Friday.
  • Pair recently bounced off 145.90-146.00 horizontal-support comprising low of November 13 and November 22 high, which in-turn signal brighter chances of its recovery towards 146.60 immediate resistance.
  • Should the quote maintain its strength past-146.60, 147.25, 148.00 and 148.30 can come back on the chart.
  • Meanwhile, a downside close beneath 145.90 can make the sellers target 200-day simple moving average (SMA) figure of 144.65.
  • However, pair’s decline after 144.65 may find it hard to conquer 100-day SMA and an ascending support-line stretched since January 07, at 143.50.
