GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Slow Range Trade Continues

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Slow Range Trade Continues

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 183.47, 181.84, 179.19
  • Resistance: 186.60, 188.23, 190.88

The British Pound continues to tread water against the Japanese Yen having found resistance below the 187.00 figure. Near-term resistance is at 186.60, the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 188.23. Alternatively, a reversal below the 183.47-184.31 zone (November 6 high, 14.6% Fib retracement) clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% retracement at 181.84.

While negative RSI divergence points to ebbing upside momentum and warns a turn lower may be ahead, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests entering short is premature. We will remain on the sidelines for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
