Daily Pivots: (S1) 141.12; (P) 142.22; (R1) 142.82; More
GBP/JPY reaches as low as 141.37 so far as decline from 147.76 continues. Intraday bias stays on the downside for deeper fall. Sustained trading below trend line support will pave the way to 135.58/138.65 support zone. As GBP/JPY is seen as staying in consolidation pattern from 148.42, we'd expect strong support from 135.58 to contain downside. On the upside, above 142.25 minor resistance will turn intraday bias neutral first. But near term outlook will remain bearish as long as 144.01 support turned resistance holds.
In the bigger picture, the sideway pattern from 148.42 is extending with another leg. But we'd expect strong support from 135.58 and 50% retracement of 122.36 to 148.42 at 135.39 to contain downside. Medium term rise is still expected to resume later. And break of 38.2% retracement of 196.85 to 122.36 at 150.43 will carry long term bullish implications. However, firm break of 135.58/39 will dampen the bullish view and turn focus back to 122.36 low.
