GBP/JPY Weekly Outlook

GBP/JPY rose further to as high as 142.23 last week but retreated ahead of 142.71 resistance. Initial bias is turned neutral this week first. On the downside, break of 140.31 support will indicate short term topping. Intraday bias will be turned back to the downside for 136.96 support. However, decisive break of 142.71 will resume whole rise from 123.94. Next target is 147.95 resistance.

In the bigger picture, rise from 123.94 is seen as a rising leg of the sideway consolidation pattern from 122.75 (2016 low). As long as 147.95 resistance holds, an eventual downside breakout remains in favor. However, firm break of 147.95 will raise the chance of long term bullish reversal. Focus will then be turned to 156.59 resistance for confirmation.

In the longer term picture, repeated rejection by 55 month EMA indicate long term bearishness in the cross. Down trend from 251.09 (2007 high) should eventually resume through 122.75 to 116.83 (2011 low) and below. However, sustained break of 55 month EMA (now at 143.73) will dampen this view and could open up further rise back to 195.86 (2015 high).

GBP/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 149.11; (P) 149.60; (R1) 150.06; More

GBP/JPY’s rebound from 146.92 resumes after brief consolidation and reaches as high as 151.38 so far. Intraday bias remains on the upside for 152.82 high. Firm break there will confirm resumption of medium term rise from 122.36 and target 163.87 resistance next. On the downside, break of 149.11 minor support will turn bias to the downside and extend the correction from 152.82. In that case, we’d expect strong support from 61.8% retracement of 139.29 to 152.82 at 144.45 to bring rebound.

In the bigger picture, medium term rebound from 122.36 is still expected to resume after corrective pull back from 152.82 completes. Firm break of 38.2% retracement of 196.85 to 122.36 at 150.43 will carry long term bullish implications. In that case, GBP/JPY could target 61.8% retracement at 167.78. However, break of 139.29 will indicate rejection from 150.43 key fibonacci level. And the three wave corrective structure of rebound from 122.36 will argue that larger down trend is resuming for a new low below 122.26.

GBP/JPY Weekly Outlook

GBP/JPY engaged in consolidation above 147.04 last week and outlook is unchanged. Initial bias remains neutral this week first. In case of stronger recovery, upside should be limited below 150.60 support turned resistance to bring fall resumption. Below 147.04 will target 144.97 first. Break there will resume the fall from 156.59 and target 100% projection of 156.59 to 144.97 from 153.84 at 142.22 next.

In the bigger picture, for now, we’re treating price actions from 156.59 as a corrective move. Therefore, while deeper fall is expected, strong support should be seen above 139.29 cluster support (50% retracement of 122.36 to 156.59 at 139.47) to contain downside and bring rebound. There is still prospect of extending the rise from 122.36. However, considering that GBP/JPY failed to sustain above 55 month EMA (now at 153.94), firm break of 139.29 will confirm trend reversal and turn outlook bearish.

In the longer term picture, the failure to sustain above 55 month EMA (now at 153.94) is mixing up the outlook. Nonetheless, as long as 139.29 holds, rise from 122.26 is in favor to extend to 50% retracement of 195.86 (2015high) to 122.36 (2016 low) at 159.11, and possibly further to 61.8% retracement at 167.78 before completion. However, firm break of 139.29 will turn focus back to 116.83/122.36 support zone instead.

GBP/JPY Weekly Outlook

GBP/JPY’s recovery last week indicates short term bottoming at 144.97. Initial bias remains neutral this week for consolidation above there. In case of stronger rise, upside should be limited by 150.92 (50% retracement of 156.59 to 144.97 at 150.78 to bring fall resumption. Break of 144.97 will extend the decline from 156.59 to 143.51 medium term fibonacci level next.

In the bigger picture, the case for medium term reversal continues to build up. There is bearish divergence condition in daily MACD. 146.96 support was taken out. And GBP/JPY was rejected by 55 month EMA. Break of 38.2% retracement of 122.36 to 156.59 at 143.51 will pave the way to 61.8% retracement at 135.43 and below. This will now be the preferred case as long as 150.92 resistance holds.

In the longer term picture, rejection from 55 month EEMA (now at 154.20) argues that medium term rebound from 122.36 might be completed. And, the corrective structure also carries some bearish implication today. Sustained break of 135.58 key support will likely bring retest of 122.36 low, with prospect of resuming the long term down trend from 195.86 (2015 high).

Daily Pivots: (S1) 142.75; (P) 143.86; (R1) 145.06; More…

GBP/JPY failed to take out 145.67 and retreated. Intraday bias is turned neutral first. On the upside, break of 145.67 will target 38.2% retracement of 156.59 to 139.88 at 146.26. Decisive break there will be a strong signal that fall from 156.59 has completed at 139.88, ahead of 139.29/47 key support zone. Further rally should then be seen to 149.30 resistance for confirmation. On the downside, though, break of 142.58 will turn focus back to 139.88 low instead.

In the bigger picture, at this point decline from 156.59 is still seen as a corrective move. Focus remains on 139.29 cluster support (50% retracement of 122.36 to 156.59 at 139.47). Strong rebound from there will re-affirm the bullish case that rise from 122.36 is still to extend through 156.59 high. However, sustained break of 139.29/47 should confirm medium term reversal. GBP/JPY would then target a retest on 122.26 (2016 low).

Daily Pivots: (S1) 150.39; (P) 150.94; (R1) 151.39; More…

Intraday bias in GBP/JPY remains on the upside for 61.8% retracement of 156.59 to 144.97 at 152.15 and above. or now, price actions from 144.97 are still seen as corrective looking. Hence, we’ll look for sign of loss of upside momentum as it approaches 156.59 high. On the downside, below 150.62 minor support will turn intraday bias neutral first. But break of 148.37 is needed to confirm completion of the rebound. Otherwise, near term outlook will remain cautiously bearish in case of retreat.

In the bigger picture, the outlook is turning mixed again. On the one hand, the cross was rejected by 55 month EMA (now at 154.20) after breaching it briefing. On the other hand, there was no sustainable selling pushing it through 38.2% retracement of 122.36 to 156.59 at 143.51. The most likely scenario is that GBP/JPY is turning into a sideway pattern between 143.51 and 156.59. And more range trading would now be seen before a breakout, possibly on the upside.

Daily Pivots: (S1) 150.32; (P) 150.69; (R1) 151.42; More

GBP/JPY’s correction from 152.82 is still in progress and deeper fall could be seen. But downside should be contained by 38.2% retracement of 141.17 to 152.82 at 148.36 to bring rally resumption. Break of 152.82 will extend the larger rise from 122.36 to 61.8% projection of 122.36 to 148.42 from 139.29 at 155.39 next.

In the bigger picture, medium term rebound from 122.36 is in progress. Firm break of 38.2% retracement of 196.85 to 122.36 at 150.43 will carry long term bullish implications. In that case, GBP/JPY could target 61.8% retracement at 167.78. For now, the bullish scenario is preferred as long as 139.29 support holds.

Intraday bias in GBP/JPY remains on the upside at this point. Current up trend from 123.94 should now target 100% projection of 123.94 to 142.71 from 133.03 at 151.80 next. On the downside, below 147.52 minor support will turn intraday bias neutral and bring consolidations first, before staging another rally.

In the bigger picture, rise from 123.94 is seen as the third leg of the sideway pattern from 122.75 (2016 low). With 147.95 resistance taken out, further rally would now be seen to 156.59 resistance (2018 high), Sustained break there should confirm long term bullish trend reversal. On the downside, break of 142.71 resistance turned support is needed to be the first sign of completion of the rise from 123.94. Otherwise, outlook will remain bullish even in case of deep pull back.

GBP/JPY’s break of 154.80 indicates up trend resumption. Current rally should now target 156.59 key resistance first. Break will carry larger bullish implication and target 61.8% projection of 133.03 to 153.39 from 149.03 at 161.61. On the downside, break of 153.81 support is needed to indicate short term topping. Otherwise, outlook will remain bullish in case of retreat.

In the bigger picture, rise from 123.94 is seen as the third leg of the pattern from 122.75 (2016 low). Next target is 156.59 resistance (2018 high). Sustained break there should confirm long term bullish trend reversal. Next target is 61.8% retracement of 195.86 (2015 high) to 122.75 at 167.93. On the downside, break of 142.71 resistance turned support is needed to be the first sign of completion of the rise from 123.94. Otherwise, outlook will remain bullish even in case of deep pull back.

GBP/JPY Weekly Outlook

GBP/JPY dropped sharply to as low as 140.92 last week. Strong break of 143.18 support confirmed resumption of whole decline from 156.59. Initial bias stays on the downside this week for 139.29/47 key support level. We’ll pay attention to bottoming signal around that level. On the upside, break of 143.48 resistance is needed to indicate short term bottoming. Otherwise, outlook will remain bearish in case of recovery.

In the bigger picture, at this point decline from 156.59 is still seen as a corrective move. But the current downside accelerate makes this view shaky. Focus will be on 139.29 cluster support (50% retracement of 122.36 to 156.59 at 139.47). Strong rebound from there will re-affirm the bullish case that rise from 122.36 is still to extend through 156.59 high. However, sustained break of 139.29/47 should confirm medium term reversal. GBP/JPY would then target a retest on 122.26 (2016 low).

In the longer term picture, the failure to sustain above 55 month EMA (now at 152.88) is mixing up the outlook. Nonetheless, as long as 139.29 holds, rise from 122.36 is in favor to extend to 50% retracement of 195.86 (2015high) to 122.36 (2016 low) at 159.11, and possibly further to 61.8% retracement at 167.78 before completion. However, firm break of 139.29 will turn focus back to 116.83/122.36 support zone instead.

With 151.19 minor resistance intact, deeper decline is expected for 146.96 support. Considering bearish divergence condition in daily MACD, firm break of 146.96 will be another sign of medium term trend reversal. On the upside, break of 151.19 will indicate short term bottoming and turn bias back to the upside for rebound.

In the bigger picture, as long as 146.96 key support holds, medium term outlook remains bullish. Rise from 122.36 is in favor to extend to 61.8% retracement of 195.86 to 122.36 at 167.78. However, break of 146.96 support will indicate trend reversal after rejection by 55 month EMA. In that case, deeper fall would be seen to 38.2% retracement of 122.36 to 156.59 at 143.51 and then 61.8% retracement at 135.43.

GBP/JPY’s break of 131.90 support suggests that corrective rebound from 123.94 has completed. Intraday bias is turned back to the downside for retesting 123.94 low. On the upside, above 133.17 minor resistance will turn intraday bias neutral first. But after all, upside should be limited by 61.8% retracement of 144.95 to 123.94 at 136.92.

In the bigger picture, price actions from 122.75 (2016 low) are merely a sideway consolidation pattern, which has completed at 147.96. Larger down trend from 195.86 (2015 high) as well as that from 251.09 (2007 high) are possibly resuming. Break of 122.75 should target 61.8% projection of 195.86 to 122.75 from 147.95 at 102.76 next. In any case, outlook will remain bearish as long as 147.95 resistance holds.

Intraday bias in GBP/JPY remains neutral for consolidation below 144.84 temporary top. Further rise is still expected as long as 140.62 support holds. Above 144.84 will extend the rebound from 131.51 to trendline resistance at around 147.35. We’d expect strong resistance from there to limit upside at first attempt. On the downside, firm break of 140.62 will suggest completion of the rebound and turn bias to the downside.

In the bigger picture, the strong rebound from 131.51 suggests that medium term fall from 156.59 (2018 high) has completed already. The corrective structure of such decline is turn argues that it’s the second leg of the corrective pattern from 122.36 (2016 low). And this pattern is starting the third leg. On the upside, decisive break of 149.38 will pave the way to 156.59 resistance and above.

GBPJPY Seems To Be Looking For Recovery After Steep Losses

GBPJPY has come under renewed selling pressure over the past four days following the upside run towards the 15-week high of 139.80. The pair declined beneath the 100- and 200-day simple moving averages (SMAs) but found strong support at the 20-day SMA earlier today.

Looking to the short-term oscillators, the stochastic and the RSI promote slight improvements around their oversold and neutral marks respectively, despite diminished directional momentum. Yet, the bullish crossover within the 20- and 40-day SMAs maintains a bullish tone in the market.

A successful attempt above the 100-day SMA could raise the likelihood of the price meeting the 200-day SMA currently at 137.50. More gains could lead the price towards the 15-week peak at 139.80 and the 140.90 resistance level, while investors could look for more bullish moves leading up to the 144.95 barrier, identified by the high on February 21.

On the flip side, a continuation of the recent bearish movement could find immediate support at the 40-day SMA, which stands near the 133.00 psychological mark. A drop beneath this key line and the short-term ascending line could find support at 129.30, registered on May 18. Even lower, a minor level at 127.27 may halt bearish movement.

Summarizing, GBPJPY has been in a bullish structure since March 18, but it is currently creating a bearish correction which may end near the 133.00 handle. If not, the price could shift its bias to neutral in the short-term.

GBP/JPY Weekly Outlook

Outlook in GBP/JPY is unchanged as the cross extended the sideway consolidation pattern from 149.70 last week. Initial bias remains neutral this week first. While deeper pull back cannot be ruled out, further rally is still expected as long as 145.67 resistance turned support holds. On the upside, above 149.70 will target 153.84/156.69 resistance zone next. However, break of 145.67 will suggest that the rebound from 139.88 has completed and turn near term outlook bearish again.

In the bigger picture, current development suggests that GBP/JPY has successfully defended 139.29 cluster support (50% retracement of 122.36 to 156.59 at 139.47). And, the rally from 122.36 (2016 low) is still intact. Such medium to long term rise would extend through 156.96 high. This will now be the preferred case as long as 145.67 near term support holds. However, break of 145.67 will turn focus back to 139.29/47 key support zone.

In the longer term picture, the failure to sustain above 55 month EMA (now at 152.97) mixed the outlook. Nonetheless, as long as 139.29 holds, rise from 122.36 is in favor to extend to 50% retracement of 195.86 (2015 high) to 122.36 (2016 low) at 159.11, and possibly further to 61.8% retracement at 167.78 before completion. However, firm break of 139.29 will turn focus back to 116.83/122.36 support zone instead.

GBP/JPY’s break of 145.67 resistance turned support now suggests that whole rise from 139.88 has completed at 149.70 already. Intraday bias is now on the downside for 142.59 support first. Break will target 139.88 low next. On the upside, break of 147.57 resistance is needed to indicate completion of fall from 149.70. Otherwise, near term outlook will now stay mildly bearish even in case of recovery.

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.

GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 132.51; (P) 132.83; (R1) 133.27; More…

Intraday bias in GBP/JPY remains neutral first. Corrective rebound from 123.94 could have already completed at 135.74 already. On the downside, break of 131.90 will resume the fall from 135.74 and target a retest on 123.94 low. On the upside, in case of another rise, upside should be limited by 61.8% retracement of 144.95 to 123.94 at 136.92 to bring near term reversal.

In the bigger picture, price actions from 122.75 (2016 low) are merely a sideway consolidation pattern, which has completed at 147.96. Larger down trend from 195.86 (2015 high) as well as that from 251.09 (2007 high) are possibly resuming. Break of 122.75 should target 61.8% projection of 195.86 to 122.75 from 147.95 at 102.76 next. In any case, outlook will remain bearish as long as 147.95 resistance holds.

Daily Pivots: (S1) 141.44; (P) 142.12; (R1) 143.38; More…

GBP/JPY recovered after dipping to 140.83. Intraday bias is turned neutral first. In case of another fall, we’d still expect strong support from 139.31/77 (38.2% retracement of 126.54 to 147.95 at 139.77) to bring rebound. On the upside, above 144.36 will bring retest of 147.95 resistance. However, sustained break of 139.77 will pave the way to 61.8% retracement at 134.71.

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.

GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 127.29; (P) 128.26; (R1) 129.70; More…

GBP/JPY is staying in consolidation from 126.54 and intraday bias remains neutral first. For now, as long as 130.06 minor resistance holds, further decline is still expected. Break of 126.54 will extend larger down trend to 122.36 low. However, break of 130.06 will indicate short term bottoming. Stronger rebound should be seen to 55 day EMA (now at 134.32).

In the bigger picture, outlook remains clearly bearish with GBP/JPY staying well below 55 week and 55 month EMA. Medium term fall from 156.59 (2018 high) is still in progress. Next target is 122.36 (2016 low). We’d be cautious on bottoming there. But break of 135.66 resistance is needed to be the first sign of reversal. Sustained break of 122.36 will target next key level at 116.83 (2011 low).

GBP/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 139.41; (P) 140.06; (R1) 140.63; More…

GBP/JPY’s break of 138.23 support argues that corrective rise from 133.03 has completed, on bearish divergence condition in 4 hour MACD. The pattern from 142.71 might be starting another falling leg. Intraday bias is back on the downside for 137.19 support first. Firm break there will add more credence to this bearish case and target 133.03/134.40 support zone. This will remain the favored case as long as 140.70 resistance holds, in case of recovery.

In the bigger picture, rise from 123.94 is seen as a rising leg of the sideway consolidation pattern from 122.75 (2016 low). As long as 147.95 resistance holds, an eventual downside breakout remains in favor. However, firm break of 147.95 will raise the chance of long term bullish reversal. Focus will then be turned to 156.59 resistance for confirmation.
