GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 142.74; (P) 143.01; (R1) 143.50; More…

Intraday bias in GBP/JPY is turned neutral with a temporary top formed at 143.65. Another rise is mildly in favor as long as 141.92 minor support holds. Above 143.65 will target 55 day EMA (now at 144.60) and above. On the downside, however, below 141.92 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).
