the GBP/JPY has bounced at the 61.8% Fib and 21 ema zone. This could indicate a bullish ABC (purple) pattern.
The GBP/JPY seems to have completed an inverted head and shoulders (purple boxes) reversal chart pattern. Price could aim for the Fibonacci confluence zones. One target zone is around 133.25 with a 61.8% Fib and -27.2% target. The second zone is at +/- 134.50 with 78.6% Fib and -61.8% Fib target.
Price will need to break above the resistance trend line and long-term moving averages first to confirm swing (green check). A re break below the 21 ema could indicate a deeper retracement within wave B. A break below the 100% Fib invalidates (red x) the ABC pattern.
The GBP/JPY is showing strong bullish impulsiveness, which could kick off an immediate breakout. But chances of a small pullback and return into the support zone around 131.80 remain decent. Only a break below 131.25 should worry the bulls and could indicate a deeper retracement (orange arrow and red x).
