GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Rebound Stalls Below 174.00

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Rebound Stalls Below 174.00

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 173.44, 172.59, 171.75
  • Resistance: 173.96, 174.82, 175.35-50

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 173.44, the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion exposes the July 23 low at 173.59. Alternatively, a reversal above the 23.6% Fib at 173.96 clears the way for a test of 174.82, the 38.2% expansion.

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.
