Elliott wave analysis of GBP/JPY for May 18 - 2020


GBP/JPY has declined as we expected. It should now stay below minor resistance at 131.42 as the downside pressure is likely to extend towards 127.69 and ultimately below 123.99 to complete the long-term decline from 147.95.

Ideally, resistance in the 130.22 - 130.58 area will cap the upside for a continued downside pressure towards 127.69 and 123.99. Only an unexpected break above resistance at 131.42 will question the bearish outlook and indicate a possible turn-around for a bullish outlook.

R1: 130.22

Pivot: 129.85

S1: 129.24

S2: 128.80
