GBPJPY: Dying To See A Hammer

After gaining against JPY for 2 days, pound sterling started to give it all back. The current rate is 129.54 with support trendline at 129 area. As I said in my previous post, there is no sign for a reversal, yet. Meaning, I'm dying to see a hammer or at least a long lower shadow/tail/wick on daily chart on the following days. No no no.. the hammer wouldn't be my buy signal, just a first signal for a bullish movement. The price should close above 130.70 to confirm the hammer. Now you might think that confirmation would be my buying signal. Well, false again. But we almost there. After closing above 130.70 area, the pair should retrace right? That would be my buying signal. Now, lets wait for that moment to happen.

GBP/JPY Update

Following my last post on GBPJPY titled 'what if', the pair had tested 135 level before turning back to its previous level. Current rate for this pair is 129.38, which is also at the support trendline. So far, there is no sign of reversal. Nonetheless, the price did find some support in this area. I would suggest a neutral view, with a possibility to rise further to the upper trendline. Closing below previous bottom would trigger bearish view. Other than that, the scenario for 141.20 area is still in play.
