Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for August 24, 2017


GBP/JPY is expected to trade with bullish outlook above 139.65. The pair has bounced up from support at 139.25, which should limit the downside potential, and is holding on the upside. The rising 50-period moving average is playing a support role and suggests that the pair still has potential for a further advance. The relative strength index is above its neutrality level at 50 and lacks downward momentum.

As long as 139.65 is support, look for a further advance towards 140.80 and even 141.10 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction as predicted, a short position is recommended below 139.65 with the target at 139.25.

Strategy: BUY, Stop Loss: 139.65, Take Profit: 140.80.
