GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 136.60; (P) 137.59; (R1) 138.24; More…

With 139.82 minor resistance intact, intraday bias in GBP/JPY stays on the downside. Current decline from 147.95 should target 61.8% retracement of 126.54 to 147.95 from 134.71 next. On the upside, above 139.82 minor resistance will turn intraday bias neutral first. But risk will remain on the downside for now, as long as 144.95 resistance holds.

In the bigger picture, Rejection by 148.87 resistance argues that rise from 126.54 is probably just third third leg of the consolidation pattern from 122.75 (2016 low). Medium term outlook is turned neutral first. Break of 126.54 support would resume larger down trend from 195.86 (2015 high) through 122.75 low.
