GBP/JPY: market moving sideways
2019-11-11 • Updated
The market is still moving sideways. There's a 'Flag' pattern, which led to forming a new local low. Also, we've got a 'V-Bottom', so it's likely that the pair is going to test the closest resistance at 148.56 - 148.86. The subsequent pullback from this area could be a starting point for another decline towards the next support at 144.13 - 143.71 by the lower side of a possible 'Triangle'.
