GBP/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 147.44; (P) 148.27; (R1) 148.86; More…

GBP/JPY’s break of 147.63 minor support suggests short term topping at 149.30, after failing to break 149.99 resistance. The development also argues that price action from 143.18 is a consolidation pattern that’s completed. Intraday bias is turned to he downside for retesting 143.18.76 support zone first. On the upside, above 149.30 will bring turn bias to the upside for 149.99 resistance.

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.
