Multiple Time-Frame Analysis GBP/JPY Points to 119

  • Week: This week continues to see strengthening in the Japanese Yen. The anticipated support for the GBP/JPY pair has been broken, and a strong decline can be expected.
  • We can see the counter-trend breakout in the weekly chart. A swing projection of the previous downswing targets 119.00 the low in 2009.


  • Day: The daily chart shows today's action as the trigger and confirmation for the bearish outlook.
  • The first near-term target may be 126. This is the 61.8% expansion of the previous swing. This may be where the market needs a breather before extending the decline to 100% of the previous swing.
  • One scenario that may weaken this outlook is if today's price action closes above 130.50 area by the end of the US session.
