GBP/JPY's recovery from 132.13 resumed last week and rose to as high as 138.04. Further rise could still be seen initially this week. But after all, we'd expect upside to be limited by 139.21 cluster resistance (38.2% retracement of 150.68 to 132.13 at 139.21, 61.8% retracement of 143.59 to 132.13 at 139.21) and bring fall resumption. Break of 133.89 minor support will will argue that whole decline from 163.06 is resuming for 118.81 low.

In the bigger picture, while the rebound from 132.13 was strong, there is no change in the bearish outlook. Medium term rebound from 118.18, which is a correction to the long term down trend from 07 high of 251.90, has completed at 163.05 already. Decline from 163.05 is tentatively treated as resumption of the long term down trend from 2007 high of 251.09 and should target a new low below 118.81. On the upside, decisive break of 143.59 cluster resistance (61.8% retracement of 150.68 to 132.13 at 143.59) is needed to invalidate this view. Otherwise, outlook will remain bearish.

In the longer term picture, fall from 251.09 is treated as resumption of multi decade down trend. Note that the fall from 215.87 is not treated as the fifth wave, but the third wave inside the third wave that started at 241.35. On resumption, the down trend will extend to 61.8% projection of 215.87 to 118.81 from 163.05 at 103.03 next, which is close to 100 psychological support.
