Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for August 18, 2017


All our targets which we predicted yesterday were met. GBP/JPY is still under pressure and expected to continue the downside movement. The pair remains weak below its falling 20-period and 50-period moving averages, and is expected to post further downsides. The process of lower highs and lows remains intact, which should confirm a negative outlook. Besides, the relative strength index is still bearish, without showing any reversal signals.

To conclude, as long as 141.20 is not surpassed, the risk of a slide below 139.20 remains high. Our next down target is set at 138.65.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction as predicted, a long position is recommended above 142.25 with the target at 142.65.

Strategy: SELL, Stop Loss: 139.20, Take Profit: 138.65.
