GBP/JPY Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 139.87; (P) 140.47; (R1) 141.17;
Intraday bias in GBP/JPY remains on the downside as fall from 147.76 is still in progress for 138.65 support first. Break there will extend the decline to 135.58 key support level. At this point, price actions from 148.42 are seen as a sideway consolidation pattern. Hence, we’ll expect strong support from 135.58 to contain downside and bring rebound. Nonetheless, break of 143.18 resistance is needed to indicate short term bottoming first. Otherwise, near term outlook will remain bearish in case of recovery.
In the bigger picture, the sideway pattern from 148.42 is extending with another leg. We’d expect strong support from 135.58 and 50% retracement of 122.36 to 148.42 at 135.39 to contain downside. Medium term rise from 122.36 is still expected to resume later. And break of 38.2% retracement of 196.85 to 122.36 at 150.43 will carry long term bullish implications. However, firm break of 135.58/39 will dampen the bullish view and turn focus back to 122.36 low.

EUR/JPY Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 127.71; (P) 128.25; (R1) 128.93;
Intraday bias in EUR/JPY remains on the downside for the moment. Current correction from 131.39 correcting whole rise from 141.84 with break of channel support. Deeper decline would be seen to 38.2% retracement of 114.84 to 131.39 at 125.05 before completion. On the upside, break of 130.38 resistance is needed to confirm completion of the pull back. Otherwise, deeper decline is expected even in case of recovery.
In the bigger picture, the down trend from 149.76 (2014 high) is completed at 109.03 (2016 low). Current rally from 109.03 should be at the same degree as the fall from 149.76 to 109.03. Further rise is expected to 61.8% retracement of 149.76 to 109.03 at 134.20. Sustained break there will pave the way to key long term resistance zone at 141.04/149.76. Medium term outlook will remain bullish as long as 124.08 resistance turned support holds. However, firm break of 124.08 will argue that rise from 109.03 is completed and turn outlook bearish.
