GBP/JPY Stuck at Hourly 100-MA
Short unwind in GBP/JPY that gathered pace in Europe appears to have come to halt around hourly 100-MA located at 154.03 levels.

Consequently, the pair was oversold and thus a corrective rally is being witnessed today. Moreover, the the recovery is also helping the GBP/USD rise.
