Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 172.44, 171.75, 170.90
  • Resistance: 173.13, 173.98, 174.50

The British Pound moved lower against the Japanese Yen as expected after producing a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. A daily close below support at 172.44, the 50% Fibonacci retracement exposes the 61.8% level at 171.75. Alternatively, a reversal above the 38.2% Fib at 173.13 clears the way for a test of 173.98, the intersection of a rising trend line set from late May and the 23.6% retracement.

Prices are wedged too closely between near-term support and resistance levels to justify entering a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to present itself.
