Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for January 19, 2018


In line with our predictions, GBP/JPY is moving upward. The pair is now trading on the upside within its bullish channel. Both the 20-period and 50-period moving averages are heading upward, confirming a positive outlook. In addition, a strong support at 153.60 should limit any downward attempts.

Therefore, as long as 153.60 holds on the downside, likely advance to 154.60 and 154.95 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the direction opposite to the forecast, a short position is recommended below 153.60 with the target at 153.10

Strategy: BUY, stop loss at 153.60, take profit at 154.60
