Intraday bias in GBP/JPY remains on the upside for 156.69 key resistance first. Sustained break there will carry larger bullish implications. Next target is 61.8% projection of 133.03 to 153.39 from 149.03 at 161.61. On the downside, break of 153.81 support is needed to indicate short term topping. Otherwise, outlook will remain bullish in case of retreat.

In the bigger picture, rise from 123.94 is seen as the third leg of the pattern from 122.75 (2016 low). Next target is 156.59 resistance (2018 high).

On the downside, break of 142.71 resistance turned support is needed to be the first sign of completion of the rise from 123.94.
