GBP/JPY Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 141.31; (P) 141.90; (R1) 143.05;
The break of 142.16 support turned resistance suggests that corrective full from 148.42 has completed at 136.44. And, larger rise from 122.36 isn’t finished yet. Intraday bias is back on the upside for 145.38 first. Break will target retest of 148.42 high. On the downside, below 140.74 minor support will turn bias to the downside for 136.44. Break will extend the fall from 148.42 to 61.8% retracement of 122.36 to 148.42 at 132.31 and below.
In the bigger picture, price actions from 122.36 medium term bottom are seen as developing into a corrective pattern. Upside is so far limited below 38.2% retracement of 195.86 to 122.36 at 150.42 for setting the medium term range. At this point, we don’t expect a break of 122.36 in near term and the corrective pattern would extend for a while. Though, sustained break of 150.42 will target 61.8% retracement at 167.78.

Daily Pivots: (S1) 121.45; (P) 121.83; (R1) 122.50;
EUR/JPY is staying in the correction from 124.08 and intraday bias remains neutral for the moment. Rebound from 109.20 is not finished yet. Break of 124.08 will extend such rise and target 126.09 key resistance next. Meanwhile, below 120.54 will target 118.45 cluster support (38.2% retracement of 109.20 to 124.08 at 118.39). We’d expect strong support from there to contain downside.
In the bigger picture, price actions from 109.20 medium term bottom are seen as part of a medium term corrective pattern from 149.76. There is prospect of another rise towards 126.09 key resistance level before completion. But even in that case, we’d expect strong resistance between 126.09 and 141.04 to limit upside, at least on first attempt. Sustained trading below 55 day EMA will pave the way to retest 109.20.
