GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 147.06; (P) 147.60; (R1) 148.40; More…

GBP/JPY retreats notably after hitting 148.88. But with 146.79 minor support intact, further rise is expected for 149.99 resistance. Break of 149.99 will affirm the bullish reversal case and target 153.84 resistance next. However, break of 146.79 will turn focus back to 143.18/76 support zone instead.

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.
