GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 142.57; (P) 143.30; (R1) 143.76; More…

GBP/JPY’s breach of 142.81 minor support argues that rebound from 139.88 has completed at 145.67. Intraday bias is back on the downside for retesting 139.88 first. Break will target 139.29/47 key support zone. On the upside, above 144.20 minor resistance will turn bias back to the upside for 145.67 and possibly above.

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