The GBP/JPY pair has failed to stay above resistance at 144.90 which calls for a more firm test of important support in the 143.80 - 144.00 area. This support area must protect the downside for renewed strength through resistance at 145.63 that will call for a rally to 147.00 on the way higher to 148.50 and 151.50.
If, however, support at 143.80 also fails, a shift in bias towards the downside will be seen for a decline to 141.30.
Our stop at 144.80 has been hit. We will re-buy GBP at 144.00 with our stop loss order placed at 143.50 or upon a breakout above resistance at 145.63.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company - www.instaforex.com
