Our first target which we predicted in yesterday’s analysis has been hit. GBP/JPY is expected to trade with a bearish outlook. The pair remains on the downside while being capped by a bearish trend line drawn from November 21. In fact, the descending 20-period moving average is also restricting any further upside potential of the pair. Currently, the pair keeps testing the lower Bollinger band, suggesting possible acceleration to the downside.
A break below the immediate support at 147.90 would trigger a further drop toward 147.60. Key resistance is located at 148.75.
Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a long position is recommended above 148.75 with the target at 149.05.
Strategy: SELL, Stop Loss: 148.75, Take Profit: 147.90
