GBP/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 138.76; (P) 139.75; (R1) 140.30; More

Intraday bias in GBP/JPY remains on the downside for 136.44 support and below. Current decline from 144.77 is seen as the third leg of consolidation pattern from 148.42. Hence, we’d expect strong support from 50% retracement of 122.36 to 148.42 at 135.39 to contain downside and bring rebound. On the upside, above 141.96 minor resistance will turn bias back to the upside. However, sustained trading below 135.39 will argue that whole rise from 122.36 is completed and will turn outlook bearish.

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.
