As predicted on Friday, GBP/JPY is moving higher. The pair is trading above the rising 50-period moving average, which plays a support role and maintains the upside bias. The relative strength index is mixed with a bullish bias. Even though a continuation of the consolidation cannot be ruled out, its extent should be limited.
Hence, while the price is above 141.20, look for a further upside movement towards 142.70 and 143 in extension.
Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction as predicted, a short position is recommended below 140.80 with the target at 140.35.
Chart Explanation: the black line shows the pivot point. The price above pivot point indicates the bullish position and when it is below pivot points, it indicates a short position.

Resistance levels: 143.40, 144.00, and 144.75
