GBPJPY Defends Monthly Open- Weekly Range Break to Validate Long Bias

Notes: The weekly opening range has taken shape just above the July open at 192.36 with and outside day reversal candle on Wednesday extending the length of the entire range. The focus is on a break of 192.36-193.93 range with the trade remaining constructive while above the median-line extending off the February low (blue). A breach of the highs targets the high-day close at 194.43 backed by the uncovered gap at 194.94 & the yearly high at 195.86.

A break below the ML / 100% extension at 191.90 invalidates the long-side with such a scenario targeting support objectives into 190.60/77 & 189.67/69 where the 50% retracement converges on the December high. A quarter of the daily average true range yields profit targets of 48-51pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into UK event risk tomorrow with the release of the June retail sales figures likely to fuel added volatility in the sterling crosses.
