GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 140.36; (P) 140.76; (R1) 141.31; More…

Intraday bias in GBP/JPY remains neutral for consolidation above 139.88 temporary low. But as long as 142.46 minor resistance intact, , deeper fall is still in favor. Sustained break of 139.29/47 key support zone will carry larger bearish implication and target 135.58 support next. Though, break of 142.46 will indicate short term bottoming, on bullish convergence condition in 4 hour MACD. Intraday bias will be turned back to the upside for stronger rebound.

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).
