Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for February 12, 2018


GBP/JPY is expected to trade with bearish outlook. Though the pair is rebounding and is challenging the declining 50-period moving average, it is still capped by a falling trend line since February 6. Even though a continuation of the technical rebound cannot be ruled out, its extent should be limited.

To sum up, below 151.10, look for a new drop with targets at 148.90 and 147.80 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a long position is recommended to be above 151.10 with the target at 152.10.

Strategy: SELL, Stop loss at 151.10, Take profit at 148.90
