Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for August 14, 2017


GBP/JPY is expected to trade with bullish outlook. The pair is rebounding and is holding above its rising 20-peirod and 50-peirod moving averages, which are playing support roles and maintain the upside bias. The relative strength index stands firmly above its neutrality level at 50 and lacks downward momentum.

In addition, 141.70 is playing a key support role, which should limit the downside potential. As long as 141.70 is not broken, look for a further advance towards 142.80 and even 143.55 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction as predicted, a short position is recommended above 141.70 with the target at 141.20.

Strategy: BUY, Stop Loss: 141.70, Take Profit: 142.80.
