The last time sterling was here was in April 2018.
On Friday, the cross was consolidating, while the volatile environment is expected to continue as US yields continue to climb.
Should the GBPJPY cross settle above the important 150 threshold, it could be another bullish sign that the price wants to move even higher.
In the case of a breakout, bulls might push the price toward April 2018 highs near 154.
Alternatively, if a sell-off occurs, supports are seen at 149.20 and 148.10. Sterling must stay above these levels to remain in an immediate uptrend.
