GBPJPY Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that GBPJPY is now close to its 20 and 50 day averages, located at 150.7053 and 151.0718 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. 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 50 day average, which is 83.1 pips away. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days GBPJPY’s price has gone up 9 them.
