Technical Analysis – GBP/JPY slips around 145.00

GBP/JPY 08/03/19 | EconAlerts

GBP/JPY slips around 145.00; still looks bullish in the medium-term.

GBP/JPY is edging lower towards a one-and-a-half-week low of 145.11, exiting from the Ichimoku cloud in the 4-hour chart, after it unlocked a fresh three-and-a-half-month high on March 1. The bearish momentum in the MACD points to further decline in the short-term. Yet with the RSI standing near its 30 oversold level, it seems that the strong bearish view may change, and the bulls could soon take over.

Additional losses could send the price below today’s low of 145.11, where the 145.00 level is holding and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the up leg from 132.50 to 148.55, around 144.80. Another leg lower could touch the 144.75 support, identified by the low on February 22.

On the flip side, if the recent bearish rally proves overdone, the price could shift up to meet the 146.00 psychological level, near the lower boundary of the Ichimoku cloud. Heading higher, resistance could come next from the 20- and then from the 40-simple moving averages (SMA) at 146.77 and 147.25 respectively, while more upside run could touch 148.55.

In the medium-term outlook, GBP/JPY has been remaining bullish thanks to the rebound on the two-year low of 132.50 on January 3.
