The global volatility and uncertainty due to the coronavirus continue to weigh on the financial markets. The major central banks have imposed financial aid packages and lowered interest rates.
GBP/JPY was pushed lower our ideal target at 131.12 at the 78.6% corrective target and dipped to a low of 128.88. We do believe this is an overreaction and we also see a clear loss of downside momentum indication that a bottom should be found soon. We need a break above 131.28 and more importantly, a break above resistance at 134.32 that confirms wave 2/ has completed and wave 3/ is in motion for an ultimate break above 147.97.
Our stop at 130.95 was hit for a small loss of 25 pips. We will re-buy GBP at 129.00 or upon a break above minor resistance at 131.28.
