Longterm GBPY Long + Short Setup on 4H + 1D Charts 300-900 pips!

FX:GBPJPY   British Pound / Japanese Yen
Hope you all had a great weekend. Looks like our active trades are making great progress to start the week, so let's try to keep the momentum going!

The GBPJPY pair has been up trending on the Weekly chart since 3rd October 2016 and we can see price has touched down on the lower uptrend level a few times since then and has respected this trend line . Most recently we have come back down to this trend line and almost touched it today and so, we are expecting price to respect the trend line and bounce back up to continue it's trend pattern. On the weekly chart we can also see price hit a major resistance level on 12th of December 2016 and the 8th of May 2017 and was unable to break through, therefore our target TP will be just below this level with a return of 700 pips.

As we zoom into the daily + 4H charts, there is still some momentum to move down a little further. On the last two bounces, price was at 5% and 3% oversold on the daily chart and we only dropped to these levels when price touched the trend line and bounced up - Currently, price is 27% oversold so this would go in hand with our opinion that there is room to move down further before the bounce.

I have marked out some key support/resistance levels I want to keep an eye on as we monitor this trade setup. The conservative approach would be to wait for the bounce and enter above 141.3x for confirmation, however, I may just wait for the bounce and try to get in as low as possible and then keep a close eye on it.

On the flip side, with everything that is happening fundamentally... it is highly likely that the GBP will continue to fall and we may just see this pair break the trend line . I have marked out my potential targets for TP if we enter a sell instead of a long.

Comment: Sorry for any confusion, I have not entered just now. My entry was 140.x and would not recommend entering at this stage. Best to wait for pullback.
Comment: Just hit 300pips profit!!
We're almost halfway on the profit target for this pair... I will soon be closing off 1 position and bringing the second position to Break Even. This way, I bank 350ish pip profit and let my second position run to the end :)
Comment: I closed first position today at 567.5 pip profit. My second position is still running with SL at break even. This has been an awesome trade :)
Trade closed: target reached: Guys I'm closing this trade, I closed my first positional on 29th of June for 567.5 pips and today price has still failed to break a key resistance level at 146.7x and so I am closing my second position at 565 pips in profit.

A total of 1,132.5 pips banked in a single trade with two positions and all in just 10 days!! This has been an amazing journey and I hope we can score some more trades like this.

For anyone that entered on this, please let me know how you got on.

Note for anyone willing to push further: I do see the opportunity for this pair to make another leg up and seal another 100 or so pips, hitting the original target and especially with the fundamentals supporting it, however, it no longer meets my requirements.
