GBPJPY Opening Range Setup- Long Scalps Vulnerable Sub 195.50

Notes: GBPJPY is has set a tight weekly opening range after rebounding off key resistance last week at the upper median-line parallel dating back to the 2015 lows. Intraday momentum has continued to hold-60 resistance and the pair remains vulnerable for a setback while within the proposed ML formation off last week’s high. Interim support rests at 194.59/64 with a break below targeting confluence support around 194. Subsequent support objectives are seen lower at 193.16/20 & 192.50.

We’d be inevitably looking to buy this pullback with a breach of the highs targeting last week’s high at 195.81 backed by more significant resistance up at 196.37. Bottom line: look for a break of this initial weekly OR to offer further guidance on the near-term directional bias with a break of the lows shifting the immediate focus lower. Event risk is limited on the pair this week with tomorrow’s Japanese CPI print highlighting the docket. A quarter of the daily average true range yields profit targets of 33-36 pips per scalp.
