GBP/JPY Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 145.71; (P) 146.23; (R1) 146.94;
GBP/JPY’s recovery from 144.01 extends today but it’s still bounded in range of 144.01/147.76. Intraday bias remains neutral for the moment. On the upside, break of 147.76/148.42 key resistance zone will resume larger rebound from 122.36. On the downside, break of 144.01 will extend the sideway pattern from 148.20 with another fall back to 135.58/65 support zone.
In the bigger picture, rise from medium term bottom at 122.36 is expected to continue to 38.2% retracement of 196.85 to 122.36 at 150.43. Decisive break there will carry long term bullish implications and pave the way to 61.8% retracement at 167.78. In case the sideway pattern from 148.42 extends, we’d be looking for strong support from 135.58 and 50% retracement of 122.36 to 148.42 at 135.39 to contain downside.
