Technical Analysis of GBP/JPY for April 18, 2016
GBP/JPY is expected to trade in a lower range as 152 is in sight. The pair is accelerating on the downside and is looking for a lower bottom. Meanwhile, the relative strength index is badly directed. The first target to the downside is set at the horizontal support and overlap at 152. A break below this level would open way to further weakness toward 151.40.
The pair is trading below its pivot point. It is likely to trade in a lower range as long as it remains below the pivot point. Short positions are recommended with the first target at 152.
