GBP/JPY Price Forecast – British pound continues to look softThe British pound broke a bit during the trading session on Thursday, as we continue to see a lot of softness in the British pound. After all, we have the Brexit going on and of course the Japanese yen is considered to be a safety currency.
Prefer to wait for signs of exhaustion after short-term rally to take advantage of it. I think at this point we are likely to test the ¥127.50 level, followed by the ¥125 level. The British pound pulled back a bit during the trading session on Thursday as we continue to see a lot of selling pressure against the British pound in general. This is a market that is highly sensitive to risk appetite, so it does make sense that we have been very negative. Beyond that, the Brexit is nowhere near being solved, and therefore I think that any type of rally at this point should be thought of as an opportunity to sell this pair from a higher level. Quite frankly, this is a market that is ready to go much lower at the first signs of trouble.

We are below the 100% Fibonacci retracement level and perhaps even more importantly the ¥130 level. Even if we break above the ¥130 level, the ¥132 level is the next scene of selling pressure. After that, we have the ¥135 level offering even more resistance. Ultimately, I think that this market will continue to find plenty of reasons to fall apart, so I wait for rallies that show signs of exhaustion to take advantage of those opportunities. Ultimately, I think that this market will eventually go looking towards the ¥127.50 level, followed by the ¥125 level after that. Until we have some type of resolution to the Brexit, it’s difficult to imagine that rallies will be sustainable.
