Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for August 16, 2017


The targets which we predicted in the previous analysis have been achieved. GBP/JPY is under pressure and expected to trade in a lower range. The pair recorded lower tops and lower bottoms, which confirmed a negative outlook. The declining 50-period moving average suggests that the prices have a potential for a further decline. The relative strength index is mixed with a bearish bias.

To conclude, as long as 142.75 holds on the upside, expect a new drop to 141.70 and even to 141.20 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction as predicted, a long position is recommended above 142.75 with the target at 143.35.

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