Bottom line: GBPJPY medium term structure remains bearish against 140.00 interim resistance. Further, bears might have managed to carve a lower high around 137.30/40 levels as they remain poised to resume lower.
USDCHF enters into its 11th day of consecutive slide as the exchange rate trades around 0.9070 levels. This is mainly attributed to a broad based US Dollar sell off through the entire month of July 2020. The US Dollar Index has dropped nearly 4.5% across major currencies over the entire month.
Major US Indices including the SPX500, Dow Jones and NASDAQ has rallied by over +5.3%, +2.26% and +7.25% respectively this month, adding pressure on the Greenback. As we enter into the last trading day of the month, it remains to be seen if the much awaited risk aversion returns.
US Q2 GDP contracted by over 32% amidst COVID-19 pandemic and lock downs. As Spain, Italy, Canada GDP are also expected to contract, the Global Economic picture remains gloomy and the recovery isn’t going to be a V or a W shaped.
The risk of a potential second wave of COVID-19 infections remain extremely high. Japan and Australia also join the list with US, India, Brazil and South Africa, where infections are on the rise. How long will risk assets continue to rally on hopes of existing and further stimulus packages?
GBPJPY might be preparing to turn lower towards 124.00 levels as bears seem to have carved a lower high around 137.30/40 mark. The currency pair had earlier reversed from 139.75/140.00 levels and should stay below that mark, going forward.
GBPJPY had earlier dropped from 148.00 through 124.00 levels. This drop was followed by a corrective rally as expected, which stalled around the 140.00 mark. Also note that fibonacci 0.618 retracement of the above drop was tested before reversing lower.
Furthermore, the recent drop between 139.75 and 132.00 has also been retraced just above the fibonacci 0.618 retracement seen around 136.00/60 levels. High probability remains for a bearish bounce from current levels.
Most traders might remain inclined to initiate fresh short positions around current levels (137.05), with protective stops above 139.75 and projected targets below 124.00 respectively. Only a break above 140.00 would change the structure.
