- GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 171.87, 171.15, 170.56
- Resistance: 173.02, 174.20, 175.35
The British Pound may be readying to turn lower anew against the Japanese Yen after prices put in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. A daily close below the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 171.87 exposes the 38.2% level at 171.15. Alternatively, a reversal above falling trend line resistance set from early July, now at 173.02, clears the way for a challenge of the July 30 high at 174.20.
The available trading range is too narrow to justify taking a short or a long position at current levels from a risk/reward perspective. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more attractive opportunity to present itself.
