GBPJPY: Bullish bias
GBP/JPY is consolidating with bullish bias. The rate is underpinned by strong investor risk appetite; positive GBP sentiment and aggressive BOJ monetary easing stance as demand from Japan importers. But GBP/JPY gains tempered by Japan exporter sales. Daily chart is positive-biased as MACD and stochastic are bullish, although latter is at overbought; five- and 15-day moving averages are rising.
Corrective weakness from Friday’s 126.97 high would attract strong support above 146.65. A retest of the 148 high is expected in the coming sessions once a base above 146.6 has been forged, and the powerful GBP uptrend has room for a push higher towards the 147area, longer term. Only a break below 144.75 would create room for additional corrective weakness towards 144.25 and 143.35.
Buy above 144.75 with targets at 146.65 and 147.3 in extension.
R1 – 146.65
R2 – 147.3
R3 – 147.9
