Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for January 15, 2018


All our upside targets which we predicted in the previous analysis have been hit. The pair remains in an up trend, backed by its ascending 20-period moving average. The nearest support at 151.55 should limit any downward attempts. In addition, the relative strength index is supported by its rising trend line and is also displaying strong bullish momentum.

To conclude, as long as 151.55 is not broken, look for a new bounce to 152.85 and 153.20 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a short position is recommended below 151.55 with the target at 151.00

Strategy: BUY, stop loss at 151.55, take profit at 152.85
