GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 140.71; (P) 141.27; (R1) 141.58; More…

Further rise is still expected in GBP/JPY at this point. Current rally from 126.54 should target trend line resistance (now at 143.71) next. Sustained break will pave the way to 148.87 key resistance next. On the downside, break of 139.31 support is needed to indicate short term topping. Otherwise, outlook will remain bullish in case of retreat.

In the bigger picture, current rise from 126.54 is seen as the third leg of the consolidation pattern from 122.75 (2016 low). Further rally could be seen but for now, we’d expect strong resistance from 156.59 to limit upside. On the downside, sustained break of 135.74 resistance turned support will suggest that such rebound has completed. Deeper decline could the be seen to retest 126.54 low.
