GBP/JPY – Technical Analysis- H4 chart

The chart shows that the pair has been having a bearish correction on the H4 chart. As of writing, it trades right at the simple moving average 30’s support. If the support produces a bullish reversal signal, the buyers may push the price towards the North. The chart suggests that the price may find its next resistance around 184.000.

On the contrary, if the price breaches the SMA 30’s support, the sellers may drive the price towards the South. In that case, it may find its support around 179.800.

Price Action Analysis- H1 Chart

The chart shows that the price was up trending by obeying a trend line earlier. Upon finding its horizontal resistance at 182.150, the price headed towards the South with a good momentum. On its way, it made a breakout at the trend line’s support as well. As of writing, the pair trades below the trend line. Thus, the sellers may drive the price towards the downside. It may find its support around 179.800.

On the contrary, if the price goes above the trend line, the buyers may look to go long in the pair. As things stand with the pair, it may take time to happen. Meanwhile, the sellers are going take the price towards the last swing low.

Considering both charts, it seems that the H4 chart looks slightly better for the buyers. On the other hand, the H1 chart looks very good for the sellers. Thus, traders are to be very watchful making any trading decision based on these two charts.
