    The GBP/JPY has been in a steady uptrend on H4 timeframe, and after touching 153.87 it started a retracement.

Only below W L4 – 148.97 the pair might start a downtrend.

    The ECB meets on Thursday against a backdrop of concern about a global trade spat and a softening in euro zone economic data that could potentially hamper the central bank's plans to unwind its extraordinary monetary stimulus. In March, the European Central Bank dropped a long-standing pledge to increase its bond buying if needed, taking another small step in weaning the euro zone economy off protracted quantitative easing (QE). Just how much recent economic and international developments are impacting the ECB's plans to unwind QE could well make for a lively debate.
