Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for November 20, 2017


GBP/JPY is expected to trade with a bullish outlook. The pair bounced off its nearest key support at 147.65, and is likely to challenge the resistance at 149.25. Both the 20-period and 50-period moving averages are heading upward now, and should continue to push the prices higher. Last but not least, the relative strength index is reversing up, calling for a new rebound.

To conclude, as long as 148.15 is not broken, look for a new rise to 149.25 and 149.60 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a short position is recommended below 148.15 with the target at 149.25.

Strategy: BUY, Stop Loss: 148.15, Take Profit: 149.25
