NEW YORK ( fxtechstrategy.com) -- GBP-JPY continues to press higher maintaining its short-term uptrend and targeting its major resistance at the 135.09 level.

Further upside offensive above here will call for a run at 136.97 level followed by its April 2011 high at 139.99. Its daily RSI is bullish and pointing higher suggesting further strength.

On the downside, support lies at the March 2 high of 130.08, where a reversal of roles is likely to occur and then turn the pair higher again. However, if this fails to materialize, further weakness should follow toward the 126.53 level.

Further down, support lies at the 125.45 level followed by the 124.50 level and then the 122.02 level, its Jan. 25 high.

All in all, the cross remains biased to the upside having resumed its short-term uptrend.
