GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 138.34; (P) 138.75; (R1) 139.21; More

Intraday bias in GBP/JPY stays neutral first. Current development argues that choppy fall from 144.77 is still in progress. Further decline is mildly in favor as long as 140.60 resistance holds. Below 137.75 will target 136.44 support and below. But we’d expect support from 50% retracement of 122.36 to 148.42 at 135.39 to contain downside and bring rebound. On the upside, break of 140.60 resistance will turn bias to the upside and send GBP/JPY through 144.77 resistance. Overall, price actions from 148.42 are forming a consolidation pattern.

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. Or, sustained break of 50% retracement of 122.36 to 148.42 at 135.39 will turn outlook bearish for a test on 122.36 low. Though, sustained break of 150.42 will extend the rebound towards 61.8% retracement of 195.86 to 122.36 at 167.78.
