Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for January 04, 2018


GBP/JPY is expected to trade with a bullish outlook. The pair accelerated on the upside last nigh, and is now challenging its key resistance at 152.50. A bullish breakout of this threshold seems more likely to occur as the rising 20-period and 50-period moving averages call for a new bounce. The relative strength index is still above its neutrality area at 50.

In this case, even though a consolidation cannot be ruled out at the current stage, its extent should be limited. Above 151.85, look for a new rise to 152.50 and 152.80 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a short position is recommended below 151.85 with the target at 151.45

Strategy: BUY, Stop Loss: 151.85, Take Profit: 152.50
