GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 136.67; (P) 137.21; (R1) 137.97; More…

GBP/JPY’s decline from 147.95 accelerates to as low as 132.92 so far. 61.8% retracement of 126.54 to 147.95 from 134.71 is already met and there is no sign of bottoming yet. Intraday bias remains on the downside and sustained trading below 134.71 will pave the way back to 126.54 low. On the upside, break of 138.68 resistance is needed to signal short term bottoming. Otherwise, outlook will remain bearish in case of recovery.

In the bigger picture, rejection by 148.87 resistance argues that rise from 126.54 is probably just 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.
