Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for August 10, 2017

GBPJPYM30.png

We retain our yesterday's bearish outlook for GBP/JPY. The pair is trading in a lower range and is still expected to post some further downside moves. The relative strength index is around its neutrality level at 50 and lacks downward momentum. Nevertheless, 143.35 is playing a key resistance role, which should limit the upside potential.

As long as this key level at 143.35 is not broken, the pair is likely to test the next support at 141.90. A break below this level would call for a further decline towards 141.45.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction as predicted, a long position is recommended above 143.35 with the target at 143.65.

Strategy: SELL, Stop Loss: 143.35, Take Profit: 143.35.
