GBP/JPY Rally Eyeing Near-term Resistance Targets

Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook: GBPJPY is attempting a breach above a sliding parallel extending off the late-November low with the broader focus weighted to the topside while above 1.5617/35. This region is defined by the 50% retracement of the advance off the 2011 low & the February low-day close. We’ve been following this trade on SB Trade Desk since rebound off the low median-line earlier this month with the advance through the monthly opening range approaching some near-term resistance targets that could offer a reprieve for the yen. Broader topside objectives are eyed at 162.68 & 163.96- both of which converge on longer-term median-lines and could provide more significant resistance.
