GBP/JPY Price Chart - Daily Timeframe

GBP/JPY broke below the monthly opening-range lows / 2017 high-day close at 151.83 today after failing to close above the 2017 highs at 153.41. The decline takes prices below multi-month pitchfork support and keeps the focus lower in the pair. Bottom line: Possible near-term support at the trendline extending off the August lows but ultimately targeting 149.53/75 on this break.

GBP/USD: The near-term outlook hinges on a break of the monthly opening-range with a correction lower favored. That said, look for weekly open resistance at 1.3575 with a break below 1.3456 needed to clear the way for a larger decline. I highlighted this setup in today’s Scalp Report.

AUD/USD Price Chart - Daily Timeframe

Aussie rebounded off near-term support at 7800/13 before testing weekly open resistance today at 7863 and the threat remains for a deeper pullback in the pair while below 7887/98. From a trading standpoint I’ll continue to favor selling strength targeting a deeper pullback targeting the 100-day moving average at ~7770s and the trendline confluence around 7750. Levels / outlook remain unchanged from this week’s AUD/USD Scalp Report.
