Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for October 18, 2017


GBP/JPY is expected to trade with a bullish bias above 148.05. The pair seems to have formed a "double-bottom" pattern on an intraday basis, which should confirm a bullish reversal. The 50-period moving average is now below the prices, and should play a strong support role. Besides, the relative strength index is above its neutrality area at 50.

Therefore, as long as 148.05 is not broken, the pair is likely to advance to 148.80 and 149.05 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a short position is recommended below 148.05 with the target at 147.75.

Strategy: BUY, Stop Loss: 148.05, Take Profit: 148.80
