GBPJPY at Key Resistance Hurdle Ahead of UK Mortgages- 133.14 Support

Chart Created Using TradingView

Technical Outlook: UK mortgage applications are on tap tomorrow with consensus estimates calling for a slowdown to an annualized 61.9K which would be the lowest since March of 2015. Heading into the release, GBPJPY is trading within the confines of an ascending channel formation off the monthly lows with the pair testing a key near-term Fibonacci confluence at 134.45/48 last night.

From a trading standpoint, the trade remains constructive while above confluence support at 133.14 where channel support converges on a basic 23.6% retracement of the advance off the lows. We’ll reserve this zone as our near-term bullish invalidation level with a breach above key resistance targeting subsequent topside objectives at the monthly open (135.38) and the 50% retracement / channel resistance at 136.15.

A break below support shifts the focus towards 132.35, 131.73 & 131.10. Key support & broader bullish invalidation rests lower at 130.82/96 – a region defined by the 2016 low-day close & the August 19th uncovered close.

  • A summary of the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows traders are net long GBPJPY- the ratio stands at +2.8 (74% of traders are long)- bearish reading
  • Short positions are 4.0% higher than yesterday and 18.9% above levels seen last week.
  • Open interest is 3.5% higher than yesterday and 10.6% above its monthly average.
  • Current retail positioning keeps the broader outlook weighted to the downside, but there appears to be an adjustment going into the end of the month as the SSI comes off of the 2016 extreme.
  • The recent move in SSI is not only accompanied by a material uptick in short positions, but long positions have marginally increased during the same period with open interest 10.6% above the monthly average.
  • With that said, month-end rebalancing may impact market participation going into September, but a narrowing in retail sentiment may coincide with a larger rebound in GBP/JPY.
