The next key resistance is near the 116.00 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 117.76 high to 114.43 low. Any further gains could open the doors for a decent increase in the coming sessions.

Conversely, the pair could fail to continue above the 115.50 and 115.55 resistance levels. A downside break below the channel support at 115.20 may perhaps open the doors for a larger decline towards the 114.60 and 114.50 levels.

Conversely, the GBP/JPY pair might struggle to continue above the 132.00 and 132.50 resistance levels. An initial support on the downside is near the 131.40 level, below which the pair could resume its decline towards the 130.50 and 130.0 support levels.
