    FXStreet (Mumbai) - Sterling received a boost from the upward revision of the UK GDP forecast by the OBR, which ensured the GBP/JPY cross snapped four-day losing streak.

    Fails to sustain above key fib

    The cross clocked a high of 185.79, but failed to sustain above 185.63 (38.2% of 180.66-188.70). Sterling remained relatively resilient to the US data and actually clocked a fresh session high against the USD. Meanwhile, the GBP/USD pair jumped higher on an upbeat UK data.

    Consequently, the GBP/JPY cross jumped to a session high of 185.79. Ahead in the day, the action in the US stocks could affect the pair.
