GBP/JPY Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 147.97; (P) 148.36; (R1) 149.08;
GBP/JPY’s rebound resumed after brief retreat and intraday bias is back on the upside Current rise should target 149.99 resistance first. Break there will add more credence to the larger bullish case and target 153.84 resistance next. On the downside, though break of 146.79 will argue that the rebound from 143.76 might be finished and turn bias back to the downside
GBP/JPY 4 Hour Chart
In the bigger picture, no change in the view that decline from 156.59 is a corrective move. In case of another fall, strong support should be seen above 139.29 cluster support (50% retracement of 122.36 to 156.59 at 139.47) to contain downside and bring rebound. Meanwhile, break of 153.84 should confirm that the correction is completed and target 156.59 and above to resume the medium term up trend.

In the bigger picture, current development, with the solid break of medium term channel resistance from 118.65 (2016 high), affirm our view that corrective fall from there has completed with three waves down to 104.62. Decisive break of 114.73 resistance will likely resume whole rally from 98.97 (2016 low) to 100% projection of 98.97 to 118.65 from 104.62 at 124.30, which is reasonably close to 125.85 (2015 high). This will now be the preferred case as long as 119.36 support holds.
