GBP/JPY-Technical Analysis-H4 Chart

The chart shows that the price upon finding its horizontal resistance around 185.700 made a strong bearish move. On its way, it made a bearish breakout at the Simple Moving Average 30. The price consolidated around the breakout area for a while. It then produced a bearish engulfing candle. That attracted the sellers to go short on the pair. The price has been heading towards the South with good bearish momentum. As of writing, the pair trades around 183.560. This is a level, where the price reacted several times earlier. Thus, this level may hold back the bear for a while. A breakout below the level may drive the price towards the South further. The price may find its next support around 181.400.

On the upside, it does not look promising for the bull. It may make a correction upward. However, the buyers must wait for the price to produce a strong bullish reversal pattern or a bullish move breaching the SMA 30.
