GBP/JPY daily chart

  • In spite of breaking twelve-week-old ascending trend-line, the GBP/JPY pair is presently trading around 200-day SMA level of 144.70 during early Monday.
  • The quote needs to slip under 144.70 simple moving average (SMA) support in order to aim for 100-day SMA level of 143.70 whereas 50% Fibonacci retracement of its April 2018 to January 2019 downturn can limit further declines at 143.10.
  • Should prices keep trading southwards past-143.10, 141.80 and 141.10-141.00 can please sellers.
  • Alternatively, an upside clearance beyond 145.40 support-turned-resistance may need to surpass 61.8% Fibonacci retracement to target 146.00 and 146.60.
  • Additionally, 147.50 and the current month high near 148.90 may please buyers after 146.60 but ahead of challenging them with ten-month-old descending trend-line at 149.30.
