Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 178.28, 176.35, 175.01
  • Resistance: 179.31, 180.97, 182.31

The British Pound looks poised to continue pushing higher against the Japanese Yen after issuing the strongest daily close in six years. Near-term resistance is at 179.31, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing 180.69-97 area marked by the 38.2% level and the September 19 high. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 14.6% Fib at 178.28 opens the door for a test of the 176.35-63 region bracketed by the September 23 low and the 38.2% Fib retracement.

The available trading range between near-term support and resistance is too narrow to justify entering a long or short position at current levels from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines until a more attractive opportunity presents itself.
