GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 138.73; (P) 139.67; (R1) 140.25; More

GBP/JPY had another attempt at 138.53 support but rebounded from there again. The cross is staying in range of 138.53/142.79 and intraday bias remains neutral first. Price actions from 148.42 are viewed as a consolidation pattern. On the downside, break of 138.53 support will bring deeper decline to 136.44 support and possibly below. However, we’d expect strong support at 50% retracement of 122.36 to 148.42 at 135.39 to bring rebound. On the upside, above 142.79 will turn bias back to the upside for 144.77 and above.

In the bigger picture, price actions from 122.36 medium term bottom are still seen as a corrective pattern. Main focus is on 38.2% retracement of 195.86 to 122.36 at 150.42. Rejection from there will turn the cross into medium term sideway pattern with a test on 122.36 low next. Though, sustained break of 150.42 will extend the rebound towards 61.8% retracement at 167.78.
