Forex: GBP/JPY Technical Analysis – Treading Water Above 169.00

Forex: GBP/JPY Technical Analysis – Treading Water Above 169.00

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 169.28 (23.6% Fib exp.), 167.68 (38.2% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 171.11 (trend line), 171.87 (Feb 18 high)

The British Pound continues to tread water against the Japanese Yen, with prices moving sideways below trend line resistance set from early January. A break below initial support is at 169.28, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, exposes the 38.2% level at 167.68. Alternatively, a push above the trend line (now at 171.11) targets the February 18 high at 171.87.

A string of consecutive indecision candles and flat-lining daily change readingshint at ebbing bullish momentum but fall short of offering firm confirmation of reversal. Risk/reward considerations are also skewed against taking a trade with prices trading too close to relevant up- and down-side technical barriers. We will continue stand aside for now.
