GBP/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 145.70; (P) 146.65; (R1) 147.23; More…

GBP/JPY’s break of 145.67 resistance turned support now suggests that whole rise from 139.88 has completed at 149.70 already. Intraday bias is now on the downside for 142.59 support first. Break will target 139.88 low next. On the upside, break of 147.57 resistance is needed to indicate completion of fall from 149.70. Otherwise, near term outlook will now stay mildly bearish even in case of recovery.

In the bigger picture, as long as 139.29 cluster support (50% retracement of 122.36 to 156.59 at 139.47) holds, up trend from 122.36 (2016 low) would still extend beyond 156.69 high. However, decisive break of 139.29/47 will suggest that such up trend is completed and turn outlook bearish.
