Potential Trade Setup: GBPJPY Breaks Into Free Space Out Of A Wedge Pattern

All charts I provide are of the Daily time frame unless stated otherwise. 


Trend: Very Bearish

Key Levels: Broken support at the 143.79 area with expecting this to hold as a new resistance. Next support sits at the 141.12 area for a target.

Price Action Signal: Awaiting a retest of the broken key level with a price action signal

Chart Notes: The GBPJPY Breaks Into Free Space with breaking out of a weekly wedge. 

With a strong bearish bias now  intact and currently waiting for a retrace back into the broken structure level.

Potential Trade Idea:

I am considering selling this pair if the broken key level of 143.79 now holds as a new resistance. 

I will be looking for a strong bounce of this key level with a nice bearish reversal candlestick pattern.

As you will notice from the chart below, the GBPJPY had been in a long time sideways wedge, now with a large momentum breakout.

This setup has plenty of free space, giving the trade room to head lower into the next support for a target. 

I can’t stress enough here, that patient and discipline is the key to any successful trader.

Now is your turn:
