GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: June 27, 2017
This week started with a high volatility in trading the British pound against the Japanese during the Monday session. It climbed in the upper side towards the 142.40 level in the beginning of the session. It seems that the 24-hour exponential moving average is being supportive, however, the volatility of the stock market countered the move that caused the pair to drop.
There is a significant support level found close to the 141.50 region that makes it highly probable for the buyers to return in the market or in the sidelines. On the other hand, the 142.50 level offers a relevant resistance level and it won’t take long before the price breaks out. If the market successfully climbed to the upside, then the next target of the pair will most likely be 145 handle.
Regardless of what happens, there are minor signs of volatility moving forward and open more opportunities with the current buying value. The market is anticipated to break out eventually although there are a lot of factors to consider that makes it complicated to trade this pair.
Not to forget, there are a lot of important factors that influence the British currency such as the ongoing negotiation between the U.K. and the E.U. Moreover, major news will have a big say to the market, influential enough to move the market and bring buying pressure to the market. A pullback from the recent level could further bring tension in the market when buying opportunities arise. It could reach up to 145 handles although, it might take some time to reach the said level.
