GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Brief pop into 140.50 still set for further downside

  • Holiday action has seen the Guppy remain trapped in familiar ranges, though GBP/JPY is seeing some testing into the high end as markets come back to life ahead of the new year, ticking above 140.50 despite failing to make the run into 141.00.

GBP/JPY, 5-Minute

  • The last two weeks have shown the Guppy prone to bouts of sideways momentum before heading back into lower territory, and GBP/JPY still has a long way to go before setting up a technical recovery of the last swing high 

GBP/JPY, 30-Minute

  • Last week saw the Guppy mark in a new low for 2018 at 139.59, and bearish momentum could carry the pair back into a new low before January's markets open.
