Looking at the daily chart, we notice since the start of this week GBP/JPY has been moving in the trading zone 130.84 – 133.40 eyeing a test of the low end. Hence, a close below the low end of this zone may send the price towards 128.80. Although, the weekly support levels and the zone marked on the chart (zoomed in) should be watched along the way.

On the other hand, if GBP/JPY closes above the high end of the current trading zone, this suggests more bullishness towards 135.55. However, the weekly and daily resistance underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be kept in focus.

Looking at the daily chart, we notice on July 25 USD/JPY closed in the higher trading zone 108.61 -109.77. Since then, the pair tested every day the low end of this zone however, it has been closing above it, marking a clear intention from the buyers to lead the price to the high end of the zone.

Yesterday, USD/JPY rebounded from the weekly resistance 109.00 however, today the pair broke above this level suggesting the price may rally towards 111.52. Although, the weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart (zoomed in) need to be kept in focus.

On the flipside, any close below the low end of current trading zone may press the price towards the vicinity of July 18 low at 107.30. Nonetheless, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.
