Daily chart

The GBP/JPY Friday’s price action witnessed the pair breaking the 50-day moving average (DMA) to the downside, as the 50-DMA sits at 153.14, leaving GBP bulls at risk. The positive out of the drop in the day is that the 100-DMA was not at risk, but if the GBP/JPY selling pressure continues to mount, it could be broken, exposing the 152.00 psychological support level.

For GBP/JPY bulls to reclaim the near-term control, they will need to reclaim the 50-DMA so that they can challenge the psychological 154.00. In the case of that outcome, the following supply zone would be 156.00.
