Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for October 05, 2017


The pair is under pressure below the key resistance at 149.60. The relative strength index has been capped by a declining trend line since October 4. The British pound rebounded after a two-day decline, as the IHS Markit/CIPS Purchasing Managers' Index rose to 53.6 in September from 53.2 in August.

Therefore, as long as 149.60 is not broken, look for a further decline to 148.55. A break below this level would trigger another decline to 148.15.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a long position is recommended above 149.60 with the target at 149.90.

Strategy: SELL, Stop Loss: 149.60, Take Profit: 148.55
