GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 147.99; (P) 148.64; (R1) 149.94; More…

GBP/JPY’s rally is still in progress and intraday bias stays. Break of 149.30 resistance now indicates completion of whole corrective fall from 156.59 at 139.88. Further rally should be see back to 153.84/156.69 resistance zone. On the downside, below 148.51 minor support will turn intraday bias neutral and bring consolidation first. But retreat should be contained above 145.67 resistance turned support to bring rise resumption.

In the bigger picture, current development suggests that GBP/JPY has successfully defended 139.29 cluster support (50% retracement of 122.36 to 156.59 at 139.47). And, the rally from 122.36 (2016 low) is still intact. Such medium to long term rise would extend through 156.96 high. This will now be the preferred case as long as 145.67 neat term support holds.
