GPB/JPY And EUR/JPY Currency Outlook: September 16, 2013
GBP/JPYDaily Pivots: (S1) 157.23; (P) 157.59; (R1) 158.09; Intraday bias in GBP/JPY remains neutral for some more consolidations below 158.54 temporary top. But, the downside should be contained by 154.67 resistance turned support and bring rally resumption. Above 158.54 should send the cross through 160 psychological level to 163.05 key resistance level.In the bigger picture, the rally from 116.83 medium term bottom has just resumed and further rally should be seen back to 163.05 resistance. We’d be cautious on strong resistance from there to bring reversal. Though, break of 147.10 is needed to signal completion of the rise. Otherwise, outlook will stay bullish.

While another rise cannot be ruled out, we’d continue to expect strong resistance from 133.80 to limit upside and bring reversal to extend the consolidation from 133.80. Break of 130.97 will be an early signal that choppy rise from 124.95 has completed and will turn bias to the downside for 127.96 support for confirmation. However, a sustained break of 133.80 will indicate resumption of larger rally and should target 140 psychological level next.In the bigger picture, medium term up trend from 94.11 has topped out at 133.80 on bearish pergence condition in the daily MACD. Consolidation from there could extend with another fall to 55 weeks EMA (now at 122.13) and below. But we’d expect strong support from 119.10 cluster support (38.2% retracement of 94.11 to 133.80 at 118.63) to contain the downside. Considering the five wave structure of the rise from 94.11, we’d expect another medium term rally after completing the correction.In the long term picture, the down trend from 169.96 is viewed as a corrective move and has finished at 94.11 already. Rebound from there is has an impulsive five wave look and thus, indicates that it’s far from being finished. 139.21 should be taken out in medium to long term but we’ll judge how far the rally from 94.11 could go at a latter stage.
