The Guppy is trending upward very nicely, making a bullish move of more than 300 pips just in two trading days. Our forex trading signal bagged most of it. Now, I'm looking for another 200 pips trades in it. Are you up for it?

Two Reasons Behind Bullish GBPJPY

FX junkies are wondering the reasons behind this huge bullish wave in the GBPJPY. Well, there are two reasons for this.

Firstly, the U.K Consumer Prices Index rose by 2.9% in August 2017 up from 2.6% in July 2017. It definitely will pressure the Bank of England to hike the interest rates like the Bank of Canada and Federal Reserve.

Secondly, the geopolitical tensions between North Korea and the United States are easing as there is no update fueling the safe haven demand. In response, the investors are shifting towards risky investments like stocks and forex.

Technical View – W Pattern

On the daily time frame, the GBPJPY has formed a double top at $147.600, and it's heading in the same direction. The pair testing the same level again will make it a triple top pattern or a W pattern.
