Pound/Yen up 43 pips to 152.04 building up on its four days of gains

(23:15) GMT

Hesitant but green: from an earlier low of 151.48, Pound/Yen is up to 152.04 gaining 43 pips compared to the 151.6 start of the day (0.29%).

Uptick comes while some more positive signs for Pound/Yen are out as United Kingdom Composite PMI fall short of the 61.9 projections, with 57.7 and continued its downward trajectory from previous figure of 62.2. United Kingdom Services PMI fall short of the 62 projections, with 57.8 and continued its downward trajectory from previous figure of 62.4. United Kingdom Manufacturing PMI published today at 8:30 AM came out at 60.4, falling short of the 62.7 projections and continuing its decline from the previous 63.9 figure.

As the day reaches an end a chart visual study suggests GBP/JPY could be slowing down soon as it approaches resistance at 153.19, of course crossing it might suggest further gains are ahead. In terms of trend indicators, we can see that medium-term trend indication has turned positive as the MACD (moving average convergence divergence) index generated a crossover buy signal. This occurs as the MACD line crosses above the MACD signal line. Pound/Yen is alternating around the 152.12 Fibonacci resistance level.

Overall, the technical analysis picture suggests Pound/Yen is neutral for the immediate future, with no clear-cut direction.

At the same time, S&P 500 reaches a new record high at 4,412.81. Nasdaq reaches a new record high at 14,843. Dow Jones up 238.2 points to 35,062 building up on its four days of gains.
