GBP / JPY Technical Analysis Nov 30

Will the GBPJPY break above 141.72?

The price is in a constant acceleration mode as the buyers have been able to patiently and steadily lead the pair to higher zones.

The pair has escalated, since the 29th of November 2016, from as low as 138.47 to as high as 141.25.

Stabilization and minor bullish attempts are surfacing again below the 141.72 level which is today’s major pivot point area.

Probable Scenario
