Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for April 17, 2018


GBP/JPY is expected to trade with a bearish outlook. The pair is trading below its declining 20-period and 50-peirod moving averages, which play resistance role and maintain the downside bias. The relative strength index is below its neutrality level at 50 and lacks upward momentum. To conclude, as long as 153.85 holds on the upside, look for a new test with targets at 153 and 152.60 in extension.
