GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 147.03; (P) 147.47; (R1) 148.16; More…

GBP/JPY’s rally from 139.88 is still in progress and intraday bias stays on the upside. Current rise should target 149.50 resistance. Decisive break there will confirm our bullish view that decline from 156.59 has completed at 139.88. On the downside, below 146.24 minor support will turn intraday bias neutral and bring retreat. But further rally will remain in favor as long as 142.58 support holds.

In the bigger picture, as long as 139.29 cluster support (50% retracement of 122.36 to 156.59 at 139.47) holds, the decline from 156.69 is seen as corrective move. That is, rise from 122.36 (2016 low), is still expected to extend higher through 156.69. However, sustained break of 139.29/47 should confirm medium term reversal and turn outlook bearish.
