GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Sellers Breach 174.00 Figure

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Sellers Breach 174.00 Figure

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 173.37, 172.01, 170.41
  • Resistance: 175.35, 176.35, 177.39

The British Pound slumped below the 174.00 figure against the Japanese Yen, hitting a three-week low. A daily close below the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at 173.67 exposes the 76.4% level at 172.01. Alternatively, a reversal above the 175.01-35 area marked by the July 3 high and the 50% Fib clears the way for a challenge of the 38.2% expansion at 176.35.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
