Technical Outlook

  • GBPJPY reverses at resistance – breaks weekly opening-range low/channel support- bearish
  • Interim support at 183.91 backed by 182.05 & the monthly open at 181.33
  • Resistance & bearish invalidation at 186
  • Breach targets subsequent resistance objectives at 186.47 & 2015 open at 186.70
  • Daily RSI turn ahead of 60 – pending support-trigger break would be bearish
  • Key Event Risk Ahead: Japan Retail Sales/Trade tonight, Industrial Production tomorrow and CPI & BoJ on Thursday night.

GBPJPY Shorts Favored Ahead of Major Event Risk

Notes: GBPJPY responded to a major Fibonacci confluence at 186.01/08 with a break below the weekly opening range shifting the focus to the short-side. Note that this region is defined by the 100% extension of the advance off the monthly low (two equal legs up) & the 38.2% retracement of the August decline and may have completed a more prominent correction.

That said, the immediate focus is lower (selling rallies) while below the median-line extending off the 10/21 high with a break below 184 targeting initial objectives at 183.47 & the 61.8% retracement at 182.80. A breach above the initial weekly opening range lows at 185.25 would be needed to shift the focus back to the long-side targeting the aforementioned key resistance zone at 186.

A quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yields profit targets of 35-38pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into the end of the week / month with a long list of event risk still on tap. Of particular interest will be FOMC interest rate decision, Japanese Retail Sales / Trade, Industrial Production, Jobless rate, CPI and the BoJ. It’s going to be a big week for the yen crosses.
