Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for February 7, 2018


GBP/JPY is expected to trade with a bullish outlook. Despite the pair breaking below its 20-period and 50-period moving averages, it is still trading above the key support at 152.05, which should limit the downside potential. Even though a continuation of consolidation cannot be ruled out, its extent should be limited.

To conclude, as long as 152.05 holds on the downside, look for a further upside with targets at 153.35 and 153.90 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a short position is recommended to be below 152.05 with the target at 151.25.

Strategy: BUY, Stop loss at 152.05, Take profit at 153.35
