GBP/JPY climbs to 184.00

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The decline of the yen across the board pushed GBP/JPY to 184.00, reaching the highest price last Thursday, when it reached 184.30, the strongest level in six years.

The pair was trading below 182.00 during the Asian session but then jumped and climbed rising more than 200 pips in a few hours. The rally found resistance around 184.00 and currently trades at 183.75/80, up 0.96%, headed toward the highest daily close since 2008. The yen is so far the worst performer across the board.

GBP/JPY testing 2014 highs

Last week the pair reached 184.40 but reversed quickly and ended the week below around 181.50. On Monday the pair stabilized and today is soaring, approaching last week highs. A consolidation on top of 184.00, would expose the highs. The area around 184.40/55 is an important long term resistance, followed by 185.70/80.
