40 PIPs On GBP/JPY – Get Ready for Next Trade
Arslan Butt • 1 min read
The Asian session concluded with two winning forex trading signals in the Japanese crosses, a big thanks to BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda for the volatility. Considering the upcoming economic event, we decided to take profit with the EUR/JPY and the GBP/JPY as well as looking to take another position in the GBP/JPY.
Hours earlier, Kuroda was speaking at the Upper House of Parliament. Investors tried to assess the hawkishness in his remarks yet there was nothing new in his speech.
Highlights – Governor Kuroda’s Speech
- The monetary policy cannot affect prices that move on various factors in the short-term.
- A distance of 2% inflation target.
- The BOJ is mandated to achieve price stability and will use all tools available to achieve this mandate.
If you recall our earlier update on the GBP/JPY, we spotted the bullish bat pattern on the daily chart, completing the C to D wave near 144.950 before taking a reversal. The pair traded nicely as per our prediction.
GBP/JPY – Daily Chart
On the 4-Hour chart, the GBP/JPY entered the overbought zone, the main reason for entering a sell position. The pair failed to break the 20 & 50 periods EMA, signifying the clear bearish bias of investors.
GBP/JPY – Trade Idea
For now, the GBP/JPY is likely to retrace back below 147 and that’s where I would like to place my second entry. Keep following to encash each trade we share.
All the best!
