Price has had to go through an intense period of accumulation, in which the market stored a lot of energy. There was a steady push against the market by the bears after it had broken out from consolidation earlier in the year. Though buyers tried to resist, the market was eventually pushed below 151.970 on the 16th of August. Thereafter, GBPJPY ranged continually with 149.640 as the lower consolidation border.
Price consolidation continued below the 151.970 resistance level for the next 40 trading days. During this time, the market stored a lot of energy, which is finally released to break out and surge to 157.890. At this level, bulls have expended all the energy, leaving the market vulnerable to bearish dominance. Sellers have not wasted any time in putting the price on a steady decline via a descending channel.
