Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 170.14 (trend line from Aug’13)
  • Resistance:171.27 (23.6% Fib exp.), 172.05 (38.2% Fib exp.)

The British Pound may be readying to turn higher against the Japanese Yen after prices put in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern above support at a rising trend line set from August 2013. Initial resistance is at 171.27, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that targeting the 38.2% level at 172.05. Trend line support is now at 170.14.

Prices are too close to relevant resistance to justify a long position from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal argues against taking up the short side. We will remain flat for now.
