GBP/JPY has made a quadruple-top over the last week around the 151.50 level and needs an additional impulse to push it higher. Having rallied from 139.35 just under one-month ago, with the uptrend accelerating from Monday September 11, the market is still trying to find a new equilibrium. Looking at the stochastic indicator, the pair are in overbought territory – understandably after the recent surge higher – and the first Fibonacci retracement level kicks in at 148.70, just ahead of the 148.10 May 11 high.

And on the weekly chart, the 151.65 double bottom on April 4 and June 6 2016 also come into play, providing another level of resistance. The stochastic indicator also confirms the pair in overbought territory.

Bullish GBP/JPY on Correction Lower

Chart by IG

While we remain bullish GBPJPY on a longer term basis, we look for the market to correct back to the 148.10/148.70 level before it retests the current resistance at 151.50/151.65 before pushing ahead to test the June 6 2016 high of 157.85.

Entry Point: 148.10 (May 11, 2017 high)

Target 1: 151.65 (Cluster of April 4 – June 6, 2016 lows/September 2017 quadruple tops)

Target 2: 157.80 (Just below June 6, 2016 high)

Stop-Loss: 146.70 (September 13, 2017 high)
