Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for October 02, 2017


We will retain our previous outlook for GBP/JPY. The pair is still expected to trade with a bearish bias. Though the pair posted a rebound, the upward potential is likely to be limited by the resistance at 151.55. Even though a continuation of technical rebound cannot be ruled out, its extent should be limited.

To conclude, as long as 151.55 is not surpassed, a return to 150.10 and even to 149.70 seems more likely to occur.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a long position is recommended above 151.55 with the target at 151.80.

Strategy: SELL, Stop Loss: 151.55, Take Profit: 150.10
