GBP/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 147.10; (P) 147.83; (R1) 148.33; More…

GBP/JPY’s rally continues to as high as 149.04 so far. Intraday bias remains on the upside for 139.40 resistance. Decisive break there will confirm that whole decline from 156.59 has completed at 139.88. Further rally should then seen back to 153.84/156.59 resistance zone. On the downside, below 147.17 minor support will turn intraday bias neutral first. But near term outlook will remain cautiously bullish as long as 145.67 resistance turned 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.
