Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for October 12, 2017


GBP/JPY is under pressure and expected to continue its downside movement. The pair remains supported by its declining 50-period moving average, and is likely to post a new downside target. A strong resistance base around 148.40 has formed, and should also limit any upward attempts. The relative strength index lacks upward momentum.

Therefore, as long as 148.40 is not broken, further decline is expected to 147.40 and 147 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a long position is recommended above 148.40 with the target at 149.05.

Strategy: SELL, Stop Loss: 148.40, Take Profit: 147.40
