GBPJPY Technical Analysis
The first thing we should note is that GBPJPY is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 151.0157, 151.1998, 151.9888 and 151.9269 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 100 day average, which is 85 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. Also of note is that on a 30 day basis price appears to be forming a base — which could the stage for it being a support/resistance level going forward. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days GBPJPY’s price has gone up 9 them.
