The support are is also being crossed by an ascending support level from a previous false breakdown which led to a strong price action reversal on the back of a short-covering rally.

Forex traders may want to take the ascending support level crossing the support area as a solid sign to realize floating trading profits once again and initiate a short-covering rally which will reverse the sell-off. All three bands of the Bollinger Band indicator are sloping to the downside as the lower band also crossed below the support area. The GBPJPY is trading between the lower band and the middle band, inside of its support area and at its ascending support level.

A take profit target of 189.150 has been set for a potential trading profit of 600pips on the H4 Chart. More buy orders are expected after the GBPJPY completes its breakout above the middle Bollinger Band.
