GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Confirms a bearish breakthrough near 4-week old trading range

   •  The cross gapped lower at the start of a new trading week and now seems to have confirmed a bearish breakthrough a near four-week-old trading range. 

   •  Given the pair's inability to sustain above the very important 200-day SMA, the breakdown now indicates a near-term top formation around the 149.40-50 region. 

   •  Meanwhile, technical indicators on the daily chart have also started losing positive momentum and thus, increase prospects for an extension of the bearish trajectory.
