GBP/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 142.81; (P) 143.51; (R1) 144.24; More…

A temporary low is formed at 142.76 in GBP/JPY with today’s recovery. Intraday bias is turned neutral for consolidation. But near term outlook remains cautiously bearish as long as 146.50 minor resistance holds. Break of 142.76 will extend the fall from 149.70 for retesting 139.88 low.

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. In that case, next target is 61.8% retracement at 135.43.
