Main observations for GBP/JPY historical price-action and outlook for the near future

  • The attempt of recovery, after the great fall during the economic crisis of 2008-2009, had found very strong resistance in the range of 162.55 to 163.07. GBP/JPY managed to break over that resistance.
  • Not only the above mentioned resistance was taken out but that previous resistance seems to be acting as support now and that indicates bullish sentiments.
  • The pair also completed the 38.2% retracement and broke over that resistance as well.
  • GBP/JPY's recent high was 174.84 during the beginning of January 2014. Since then the price-action has been staying below that. This fact is indicating the psychological resistance of 175.00. However, the recent lows have been getting higher and that also indicates that the pair may take out the resistance of 175.00 sooner or later.
