Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for September 12, 2017


GBP/JPY is expected to continue its upside movement in today's trading. The pair recorded higher tops and higher bottoms, which confirmed a positive outlook. The upward momentum is further reinforced by both rising 20-period and 50-period moving averages. The relative strength index advocates another upside.

Therefore, as long as 143.70 holds on the downside, a new advance to 145.85 and even to 146.50 seems more likely to occur.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a short position is recommended below 143.70 with the target at 143.40.

Strategy: BUY, Stop Loss: 143.70, Take Profit: 145.85.
