Daily Currency Outlook: GPB/JPY And EUR/JPY : February 17,2017
GBP/JPY Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 140.94; (P) 141.70; (R1) 142.15;
Intraday bias in GBP/JPY remains neutral for the moment. At this point, rise from 136.44 is seen as the second leg of the consolidation pattern from 148.42. Above 142.79 will target 144.77 first. Break of 144.77 will target a test on this 148.42 high. On the downside, below 140.67 minor support will turn bias back to the downside and extend the fall fro 144.77 through 138.53.
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.

EUR/JPY Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 120.65; (P) 120.90; (R1) 121.13;
Intraday bias in EUR/JPY remains neutral for the moment. We’re holding on to the view that corrective fall from 124.08 has completed at 119.32 already. Above 121.32 will turn bias to the upside for 123.30 resistance. Break of 123.30 will likely extend the whole medium term rise from 109.20 through 124.08 high. Below 119.32 will bring another fall. In that case, downside should be contained by 118.45 cluster support (38.2% retracement of 109.20 to 124.08 at 118.39) and bring rebound.
In the bigger picture, price actions from 109.20 medium term bottom are seen as part of a medium term corrective pattern from 149.76. There is prospect of another rise towards 126.09 key resistance level before completion. But even in that case, we’d expect strong resistance between 126.09 and 141.04 to limit upside, at least on first attempt. Nonetheless, decisive break of 118.45 cluster support (38.2% retracement of 109.20 to 124.08 at 118.39) will argue that rise from 109.20 is completed and turn outlook bearish for 61.8% retracement at 114.88 and below.
