GBPJPY price daily chart 27-06-19 Zoomed out

Looking at the daily chart we notice GBP/JPY on June 18 closed with a bullish Doji pattern, then started to move ineffectively. Today, the pair rallied to its highest level in nearly two weeks however, the price has to pass 138.32 threshold to talk about a possible bullish move.

A close above 139.00 could be a positive sign and might lead GBP/JPY towards 140.50. However, the weekly resistance at 139.90 needs to be considered.

On the flip-side a close below 135.55 may embolden the sellers to press towards 133.40. Nonetheless, the weekly supports underlined on the chart need to be watched along the way.

Looking at the four-hour chart, we notice on June 18 GBP/JPY rebounded from 135.38 and since then consolidated in a trading range 135.78 – 137.19. Therefore, a break below the low end of this range could send the price towards 134.38 contingent on clearing the weekly support zone and level highlighted on the chart.

On the other hand, a break above the June 13 high at 137.78 may rally the price towards 139.00 although, the weekly resistances underlined on the chart should be kept in focus.
