Intermediate

Recap

GBPUSD longs at support at 1.2590/80 were stopped below 1.2560 but we bottomed exactly at strong support at 1.2520/10 with longs offered up to 130 pips profit on the bounce. 1.2630/40. (We topped exactly here).

GBPJPY broke support at 136.10/00 but bottomed exactly at the next target of 135.60/50.

Forecast – 15 October 2019
GBPUSD holding minor resistance at 1.2630/40 tests first support at 1.2590/80. Below 1.2570 risks a retest of strong support at 1.2520/10. Longs need stops below 1.2485. A break lower targets 1.2460/50.
Above 1.2650 meets strong resistance at 1.2700/10 but a break above 1.2730 targets 1.2780/90, perhaps as far as 1.2830/40.

GBPJPY minor support at 136.80/70, better support at 136.10/00. A break lower targets 135.60/50 with support at 135.10/00. We reached 137.84/87 last week so a break above 138.00 is obviously positive targeting 138.35/40 & 200 day moving average resistance at 138.65/75. A break above 139.00 targets 139.60/70, perhaps as far as resistance at 140.25/35.
