Ichimoku Analysis (1-hour chart)
GBPJPY has fallen sharply after a minor recovery till 136.41. The decline was due to a sharp sell-off in Pound sterling after mixed UK jobs data. The UK Claimant count rose less than expected, while the unemployment rate surged to 4.1% vs the previous 3.9%. The intraday trend of the Pound/Yen is bearish as long as resistance 136.60 holds.
On the hourly chart, the pair is holding slightly above 55- EMA. Any break above 136.60 will take the pair to next level till 137.75/138.35 It is facing strong support at 135.75, any violation below that level targets 135.41/135/133.98.
It is good to sell on rallies around 136.30-35 with SL around 137.10 for the TP of 134.80/133.98.
