Currently, GBPJPY’s rate is down -13.9 pips (-0.1%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved up. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 100 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a doji candlestick pattern on GBPJPY. Given that we see downtrend on the 10 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a bearishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bearish alignment — meaning the shorter duration moving averages are below the longer duration averages, implying a stable downward trend.

GBPJPY Technical Analysis
The first thing we should note is that the current price of GBPJPY is sitting close to its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 100 day average, which is 294.4 pips away. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 30 and 90 day periods appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days GBPJPY’s price has gone down 9 them.
