Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for January 18, 2018


All our upside targets which we predicted in the previous analysis have been hit. The pair is moving upward and is expected to challenge the next resistance at 154.25. The 20-period moving average is turning up now and calls for a new rise. Additionally, the relative strength index managed to break above its neutrality area at 50, confirming a positive outlook.

Therefore, as long as 153.10 is not broken, likely advance to 154.25 and 165.95 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a short position is recommended below 153.10 with the target at 152.50

Strategy: BUY, stop loss at 153.10, take profit at 154.25
