Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for August 30, 2017


Upside movements are expected to prevail in GBP/JPY. The pair managed to break above its intraday horizontal level at 130.95 yesterday. The previous key resistance now acts as a strong support, which should limit any downside room. In addition, formation of higher highs and lows remains intact, which should confirm a bullish outlook.

To sum up, as long as 141.40 is not broken, look for a new rise to 142.65 and 143.00 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a short position is recommended below 141.40 with the target at 140.80.

Strategy: BUY, Stop Loss: 141.40, Take Profit: 142.65.
