Mixed Sentiment on GBPJPY, Capped at 143.07 Level as Geopolitical Tension Rage On


GBPJPY Price Analysis – January 8

GBPJPY drops to 141.12 level during the Asian session on Wednesday. However, during the American session, it recovered to 143.07 level. The pair stays in the background after the latest news showed that Iran fired several rockets at US targets in Baghdad, after which the FX pair recovered due to the unexpected stability.


Key levels
Resistance Levels: 150.00, 148.66, 147.95
Support Levels: 139.31, 130.49, 126.54

GBPJPY Long term Trend: Bullish

In the larger structure, an increase from the level of 126.54 can be either the next consolidation model from the low or the start of a new uptrend. In any case, a continuous rally is expected as long as the level of 139.31 is held in the resistance zone of 148.66 / 150.

The reaction from there may indicate in which scenario it should be. However, a steady breakthrough in the level at 139.31 may weaken this scenario and change the long-term neutral outlook in the first place.

GBPJPY Short term Trend: Ranging

GBPJPY intraday bias stays neutral at the moment. In case of another decline, we expect support from the level of 139.31 (a partial recovery of the level from 126.54 to 147.95 at 140.81) to bring a rebound.

On the other hand, overcoming the level of 144.36 may lead to repeated testing of the resistance level of 147.95. Nevertheless, a steady breakthrough of the level at 139.31 can pave the way to the restoration of the level at the level of 138.88.

Instrument: GBPJPY
Order: Buy
Entry price: 143.07
Stop: 140.81
Target: 147.95
