- GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 186.72, 184.77, 181.41
- Resistance: 189.89, 192.45, 195.01
The British Pound looks poised to make a move toward December’s swing high against the Japanese Yen. A daily close above the 38.2%Fibonacci expansionat 189.89 exposes the 50% level at 192.45. Alternatively a turn below the 23.6% expansion at 186.72opens the door for a test of the 14.6% Fib retracement at 184.77.
Entering long seems compelling from a technical perspective, but we will tactically opt not to pursue the position. We suspect a Yen recovery may be ahead, warning against taking bets on the currency’s decline. As such, we will remain flat for now.
