GBP/JPY Technical Analysis – Pound Rises to 2-Week High

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis – Pound Rises to 2-Week High

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 171.53 (38.2% Fib exp.), 170.75 (23.6% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance:172.17 (50% Fib exp.),172.80 (61.8% Fib exp., Triangle top),

The British Pound advanced to a two-week high against the Japanese Yen after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. The pair has moved to challenge resistance at 172.17, the 50%Fibonacci expansion. A break above this barrier exposes 173.59, the intersection of a Triangle chart pattern top and the 61.8% level. Alternatively, a move below the 38.2% Fib at 171.53 aims for the 23.6% expansion at 170.75.

Prices are trading too close to relevant resistance to make a long trade attractive from a risk/reward perspective. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to present itself.
