A close look at the daily chart shows GBP/JPY looking to resume its bearish move, eyeing to break below the zone at 136.40 – 136.55. Therefore, a close below this zone could kick start a bearish bias towards 133.40. The weekly support at 134.92 and 134.20 need to be watched along the way.

If the price fails to close below the zone mentioned above, a rally could start towards 139.00. However, daily resistances at 137.48 and the vicinity at 138.36- 46 would be worth monitoring.

GBP/JPY Four-HOUR PRICE CHART (May 29, 2019- JUN 14, 2019)

GBP/JPY price 4hour chart 14-06-19

Looking at the four-hour chart, we notice GBP/JPY testing the Jun 6 low. Next trough to test is the June 4 low, therefore if the pair breaks below 136.55 the bearish momentum may resume eyeing 136.00. Although, the weekly support at 136.40 needs to be cleared first. See the chart for the key levels if the selloff continues below 136.00.

It’s worth noting that GBP/JPY rallied yesterday and stopped at 137.78. Any break above this threshold might send the price towards the June 11 peak (weekly high) at 138.32. However, the resistance at 138.24 (Jun 22 high) needs to be kept in focus.
