GBPJPY 30min Chart

GBPJPY Testing Key Inflection Zone- Shorts at Risk Above 172.70

Notes: GBPJPY has come back into a key inflection point we highlighted back in on April 1st when the pair was trading on the underside of this threshold. We are now checking Fibonacci support with channel support dating back to the May low also coming into focus just lower. Although the weekly opening range did break to the downside, the pair has now completed a 100% extension off the highs and if this is to be just a correction within the broader up-trend, this support level should hold.

Bottom line: the broader directional bias remains weighted to the topside while above 170 but a near-term break sub-172.60 could fuel further losses for the pair. Look for a reaction off this level heading into the close of the month with a break/close below risking further losses for the pound. A break back above 173 shifts the near-term bias back to the topside with such a scenario targeting subsequent scalp targets into key resistance at 1.7357/75.Caution is warranted heading into Japanese inflation data and UK GDP later this week as the releases are likely to fuel added volatility in sterling and yen based pairs. Follow the progress of this trade setup and more throughout the trading week with DailyFX on Demand.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
