A classic reversal chart pattern has formed on GBP/JPY’s 1-hour time frame, indicating that the recent selloff is almost over. However, the pair has yet to make a break above the neckline of the formation before a rally is confirmed.
Take note that stochastic is already in the overbought zone and looks ready to cross down, which means that a bit of consolidation or pullback might be in the cards before an actual upside break.
Going long above the 166.00 major psychological resistance with a stop around 165.00 or lower and a target of 200 pips could make close to a 2:1 return on risk. Bear in mind that the chart pattern is roughly 200 pips in height, which suggests that the potential breakout could be of the same size.
