GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 140.87; (P) 141.78; (R1) 142.57; More…

GBP/JPY drops to as low as 140.23 so far and intraday bias remains on the downside. Current decline should target 139.29/47 key support level. We’ll pay attention to bottoming signal around there. Nonetheless, , break of 143.48 resistance is needed to indicate short term bottoming. Otherwise, outlook will remain bearish in case of recovery.

In the bigger picture, at this point decline from 156.59 is still seen as a corrective move. But the current downside accelerate makes this view shaky. Focus will be on 139.29 cluster support (50% retracement of 122.36 to 156.59 at 139.47). Strong rebound from there will re-affirm the bullish case that rise from 122.36 is still to extend through 156.59 high. However, sustained break of 139.29/47 should confirm medium term reversal. GBP/JPY would then target a retest on 122.26 (2016 low).
