GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: probing psychological hurdle of 140.00

The GBP/JPY pair is currently proving the resistance of 140.00. Moreover, that psychological level acted as stiff hurdle three times in the last 12 hours.

Hourly chart

  • The falling channel breakout and the bullish-higher lows, as represented by the ascending trendline, indicate the psychological hurdle of 140.00 could be scaled soon for a test of supply around the trendline sloping downwards from the Nov. 8 and Dec. 14 highs.
  • A daily close above that trendline would confirm a bear-to-bull trend change and open up upside toward 142.77 (Oct. 26 low).
  • The bullish setup on the hourly chart would be invalidated below 139.00.
