GBP/JPY – Bears losing power

On May 23 GBP/JPY moved to the lower trading range (139.00 – 137.84) after closing below 139.00. The price showed more weakness and failed in the following days to close above the higher end of the mentioned trading range.

On May 29 the pair declined to the level mentioned in last week’s article, 137.95, and continued its fall to print 137.87 - its lowest level in four and a half months. However, the price pulled back in the same day closing with a Bullish Doji pattern.

GBP/JPY DAILY PRICE CHART (JAN 2, 2019- MAy 30, 2019)

GBP/JPY price Daily Chart 30-05-19

A closer look at the GBP/JPY daily chart shows bears hesitating before pushing the price lower. If the price closes on Thursday above 139.00, this would be considered a bullish close, moving the price to a higher trading range (139.00- 140.50). This could result in a price rally towards the higher end of the mentioned trading range. Weekly and daily resistance levels at 139.50, 139.86 and 140.20 need to be watched closely.

A close below 137.84 would mean more weakness for GBP/JPY and move the price to a lower trading range (136.40 – 137.84). This could lead to a fall towards the lower end of the new trading range at 136.40. Weekly and daily support levels at 137.62, 137.36, 137.10 and 136.82 are worth monitoring.

GBP/JPY Two-HOUR PRICE CHART (May 16 –30, 2019)

GBP/JPY price 2H Chart 30-05-19

Looking at the GBP/JPY two-hour chart, the price rebounded Thursday from 138.22 twice. Therefore, any break below this threshold suggests the price might swing lower towards the lower end of the current trading range at 137.84. The 138.00 level would provide psychological support.

A break to the higher end of the current trading range at 139.00 could cause the price to rally towards the daily resistance mentioned above. However, resistance at 139.25 needs to be in focus.
