GBPJPY Classic Technical Report 10.19.2012

Ilya Spivak

Prices put in a Shooting Star candlestick at resistance marked by the top of a falling channel set from mid-September, warning of ebbing bullish momentum and hinting a pullback may be ahead. Initial support lines up at 124.98, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that targeting the 50% level at 123.79. Alternatively, a push above resistance (now at 127.51) exposes the upper boundary of a larger rising channel at 129.85.
