Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for September 15, 2017


We will retain our yesterday's outlook of GBP/JPY. It is still expected to trade in a higher range. The pair is holding on the upside and is trading above its rising 20-period and 50-period moving averages, which play support roles. The relative strength index is above its neutrality level at 50.

To conclude, as long as 146.55 holds on the downside, look for a further rise to 48.50 and even to 149.10 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a short position is recommended below 146.55 with the target at 145.65.

Strategy: BUY, Stop Loss: 146.55, Take Profit: 148.50.
