Daily Currency Outlook: GPB/JPY And EUR/JPY : November 17,2017
GBP/JPY Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 148.04; (P) 148.69; (R1) 149.29;
With 149.98 minor resistance intact, deeper fall is still expected in GBP/JPY for 146.92 support and below. Fall from 151.92 is seen as the third leg of the corrective pattern from 152.82. We’d expect strong support from 61.8% retracement of 139.29 to 152.82 at 144.45 to contain downside and bring rebound. On the upside, break of 149.98 resistance will turn bias back to the upside for 151.92/152.82 resistance zone instead.
In the bigger picture, medium term rebound from 122.36 is still expected to resume after corrective pull back from 152.82 completes. Firm break of 38.2% retracement of 196.85 to 122.36 at 150.43 will carry long term bullish implications. In that case, GBP/JPY could target 61.8% retracement at 167.78. However, break of 139.29 will indicate rejection from 150.43 key fibonacci level. And the three wave corrective structure of rebound from 122.36 will argue that larger down trend is resuming for a new low below 122.26.

EUR/JPY Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 132.71; (P) 133.08; (R1) 133.40;
Intraday bias in EUR/JPY remains neutral as range trading continues. On the upside, decisive break of 134.39/48 resistance zone will confirm medium term up trend resumption. In that case, 141.04 resistance will be the next time. On the downside, though, decisive break of 131.65 will confirm rejection from 134.20 fibonacci level and confirm near term reversal. And, in such case, intraday bias will be turned to the downside for 127.55 key support level.
In the bigger picture, medium term rise from 109.03 (2016 low) is seen as at the same degree as the down trend from 149.76 (2014 high) to 109.03 (2016 low). 61.8% retracement of 149.76 to 109.03 at 134.20 is already met. Sustained break there will pave the way to key long term resistance zone at 141.04/149.76. However, break of 127.55 support will argue that the medium term trend has reversed and will turn outlook bearish for deeper fall back to 114.84/124.08 support zone at least.
