GBPJPY Reversal Setup- Short Scalps Eye 182

Notes:GBPJPY is trading within the confines of a descending median-line formation off last week’s highs, with a break below the initial weekly opening range/trend-line support now coming into the 50% retracement of the advance off the September low at 184.20.

The immediate short-bias remains in play while below the slope resistance / 185 with a break of the lows targeting 183.29, 182.87 & 182. A breach above resistance risks a rally towards 186 with our broader bearish invalidation level at the upper median parallel / 186.96.

Note that this is a wide-range setup with a quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yielding profit targets of 55-58 pips per scalp. Event risk is rather limited this week with only Japanese CPI & UK Mortgage approvals on tap so we’ll be watching broader market sentiment for guidance.
