GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 142.57; (P) 142.91; (R1) 143.29; More…

With 141.32 minor support intact, further rise could still be seen in GBP/JPY for 55 day EMA (now at 144.71). On the downside, however, below 141.32 minor support will indicate completion of the rebound. And larger down trend will likely resume for 139.29/47 key support zone instead.

In the bigger picture, at this point decline from 156.59 is still seen as a corrective move. But the downside acceleration 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).
