From the daily chart, we notice on Thursday GBP/USD buyers showed strength leading the pair to close above 50-Day average and 1.2360. This week, the price continued its rally and pushed to a higher trading zone 1.2550 – 1.2785 . Yesterday, the pair rebounded nearby the high end of it.

Thus, a close above the high end could see GBPUSD trading towards 1.2965. Further close above 1.3048 could mean more bullishness towards 1.3300. That said, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.

Alongside this, any failure in closing above the high end of the zone could reverse the pair’s direction sending it towards the low end of the zone. Although, the daily support levels marked on the chart should be monitored closely.

Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Thursday GBP/JPY buyers pushed the pair above 50- Day average and 133.40. Similarly, to GBP/USD the pair resumed bullish price action this week and moved to a higher trading zone 136.40 – 139.00.

Yesterday, the price tested the high end of the zone however, closed below this level. Hence, if buyers continue pushing GBPJPY higher, then a close above 139.00 could send the price towards 140.50. Further close above this level may see the pair trading even higher towards 143.06. In this scenario, the weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart (zoomed in) should be kept in focus.

On the other hand, a close below 136.28 could press GBPJPY towards 135.55. Further close below this level may lead the pair back to 133.40. Nevertheless, the daily support levels marked on the chart should be followed along the way.
