Here is another beautiful set up on GBP/JPY for a potential 55 pip move! As you can see GJ had seen a wide range of consolidation last week which was also a very well respected area of resistance identified on the @142.00. On Friday 15th January, GJ finally broke out of consolidation zone to the downside, aggressively down towards a strong area of support also identified on the @140.900 with little sign of any pullback. This indicates to me that sellers are in complete control of the market at the moment with so much selling coming into action, there is a very high chance for the market to continue further down if there is a break of the strong support @140.900.
Prior to the strong shorts going on with GJ on Friday, the pair had been raging to the upside despite the lockdown measures in the UK which scare to bring dramatic economic effects on the UK's economy. The selling pressure on the pair seems to be arising with COVID-19 cases still at peak levels along with record breaking deaths recently. Along with COVID-19 scares that are adding pressure to GBP, there is also a No-Deal Brexit trade deal between Europe and the UK.
