From the daily chart, we notice on Nov 28 GBP/JPY moved to a higher trading zone 140.62 - 143.09. Yesterday, the price rallied above the zone then closed below the high-end reflecting buyer’s reluctance to continue sending the price higher.

Today, buyers resumed exiting the market and this led the price to decline slightly. More taking profits operations could reverse the price’s direction towards the low end of the zone. A close below 140.50 could open the door for sellers to take charge and press towards 139.00. Although, the weekly support level and area marked on the chart should be considered as they offer an attractive exit points for sellers.

That said, any close above 143.19 could embolden more market’s participants to push towards the vicinity of 144.80-94. Nevertheless, the weekly resistance level underlined on the chart should be monitored.

Looking at four-hour chart, we notice yesterday, the price tested above 143.20 however, closed below on the back of some buyers took profit.

A break below 142.00 handle could send GBPJPY towards 141.51. Although, the daily support level underscored on the chart should be watched closely. On the other hand, a break above 143.60 could resume bullish price action towards 144.13. In that scenario, buyers could face resistance at the level underlined on the chart should be kept in focus.
