Looking at the daily chart we notice GBP/JPY may be looking to continue its bearish move. Therefore, a close below 135.55 could likely lead the price to the low end of the trading zone 133.40 –135.55. Although, the weekly support levels at 134.94 and 134.20 need to be kept in focus.

A failure to close below 135.55 may rally the price to test again 136.40. If the price closes above this level it could rally towards 139.00 however, the daily resistances at 137.48 and the vicinity at 138.36-46 need to be watched along the way.

GBP/JPY Four-HOUR PRICE CHART (, 2019- JUN 19, 2019)

GBPJPY price 4hour chart 19-06-19

Looking at the four-hour chart, we notice on June 11 GBP/JPY rebounded from 138.32 and started a downtrend creating lower highs and lower lows. Today, the pair tested trading above 136.40 however, the first candlestick closed with a bearish Doji pattern showing a possible intention from the sellers to resume pressing the price lower.

Therefore, any break below the June 18 low at 138.58 may lead the price towards 134.20. However, the first weekly support mentioned above should be watched closely.

On the flipside, a rally above the June 17 peak at 136.93 could see the price trading even higher towards the June 13 peak at 137.78. Although, the weekly resistance at 137.30 needs to be considered. See the chart for more key levels if the rally continues above 137.78.
