GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 141.70; (P) 142.21; (R1) 143.14; More…

GBP/JPY recovered strongly after hitting 141.25 and intraday bias is turned neutral first. At this point, further decline remains in favor as long as 144.60 resistance holds. Below 141.25 will target 38.2% retracement of 126.54 to 147.95 at 139.77. However, firm break of 144.60 will bring retest of 147.95 high.

In the bigger picture, rise from 126.54 could either be the third leg of the consolidation pattern from 122.75 (2016 low), or the start of a new up trend. In either case, further rally is expected as long as 139.31 support holds, into 148.87/156.59 resistance zone. Reaction from there should reveal which case it should be in. However, sustained break of 139.31 support will dampen this case and turn medium term outlook neutral first.
