GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 145.80 (P) 146.34; (R1) 146.83; More…

GBP/JPY breached 146.63 minor resistance but there was no follow through buying. Momentum is also weak as seen in 4 hour MACD. Intraday bias stays neutral first. On the upside, firm break of 148.10 resistance will be a strong signal of near term reversal. Further rally would be seen to 149.99 resistance for confirmation. On the downside, break of 148.13 will extend the fall from 156.59 for 139.25/47 cluster support level.

In the bigger picture, no change in the view that decline from 156.59 is a corrective move. In case of another fall, strong support should be seen above 139.29 cluster support (50% retracement of 122.36 to 156.59 at 139.47) to contain downside and bring rebound. Meanwhile, break of 153.84 should confirm that the correction is completed and target 156.59 and above to resume the medium term up trend.
