Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 184.58, 181.41, 178.85
  • Resistance: 186.53, 187.72, 189.70

The British Pound declined as expected against the Japanese Yen after putting in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 184.58, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 181.41. Alternatively, a turn above the 14.6% Fib at 186.53 clears the way for a challenge of channel floor support-turned-resistance at 187.72.

Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests that taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind we will remain flat for now.
