How To Trade Forex- GBPJPY
The price of GBPJPY has traded through the range highs of 162.00. Price has been within this range between the lows of 156.00 and highs of 162.00 since the start of the year. Both the GBP and JPY have been weak over that period of time which has caused this trading range. However, today in the news, the manufacturing and services PMI data came in above previous and expectations causing the GBP to strengthen. The Bank of Japan (BoJ) is leaving interest rates super low which could cause the JPY to weaken.
Now the price has broken through the range highs we could look for opportunities to trade higher to the next resistance level. Minor resistance can be found at 166.00 but the major resistance is at 169.00. This means we could be looking at a 400-700 pips move to come for GBPJPY.
If the price can retrace back to the range highs, we can begin to look for bullish trading patterns. This could include the double bottom or inverse head and shoulders on a lower time frame.
