Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for February 6, 2018


All our downside targets which we predicted in previous analysis have been hit. GBP/JPY is under pressure. The pair accelerated on the downside. In addition, the downward momentum is further reinforced by both declining 20-period and 50-period moving averages. The relative strength index has broken down its oversold level of 30.

Hence, as long as 153.00 is not surpassed, look for a new decline with targets at 151.00 and 150.15 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a Long position is recommended to be above 153.00 with the target at 154.60.

Strategy: SELL, Stop loss at 153.00, Take profit at 151.00
