• GBP/JPY drops 0.56%, as rising Israel-Iran tensions drive safe-haven flows to the Yen.
  • Though lower, the pair stays bullish above the Ichimoku Cloud, with recovery possible upon reclaiming 192.00.
  • Watch key levels: Immediate support at the Kijun Sen at 191.06, with potential further drops towards 190.55.

After consolidating around 192.00 for the last three days, the GBP/JPY finally tumbled to the 191.00 handle. A flight to safe-haven assets spurred by an escalation of the Israel-Iran conflict boosted the Japanese Yen (JPY) to the detriment of the Pound Sterling. At the time of writing, the cross has lost 0.56% and trades at 191.19.

GBP/JPY Price Analysis: Technical outlook

The GBP/JPY remains above the Ichimoku Cloud (Kumo), suggesting the pair is bullish. Despite sliding below key support levels, like the Tenkan and Kijun Sen, the 50-day moving average (DMA), and hitting a daily low of  190.29,  the pair resumed its recovery to the current exchange rates.

For a bullish continuation, traders must reclaim 192.00 before breaking the next resistance area at 192.80. Once cleared that would expose the 193.00 psychological level, followed by the year-to-date (YTD) high at 193.54.

On the other hand, if the pair slips below the Kijun Sen level at 191.06, that would exacerbate a drop below the confluence of an upslope support trendline and the 50-day moving average (DMA) at 190.55.
