Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for December 05, 2017


GBP/JPY is expected to trade in a lower range as it is under pressure. The pair is trading sideways within the range between 152 and 148.60, and is likely to test the lower boundary at first. The relative strength index is mixed to bearish below its neutrality area at 50. Last but not least, the 20-period moving average is turning down, confirming a negative outlook.

To sum up, as long as 152.00 is not surpassed, look for a new pullback to 149.90 and 148.60 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a long position is recommended above 152.00 with the target at 152.95
