Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 177.53, 175.67, 174.26
  • Resistance: 178.61, 180.36, 181.78

The British Pound is attempting to build upward against the Japanese Yen as expected after producing a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 178.61, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 180.36. Alternatively, a turn below the 14.6% Fib at 177.53opens the door for a test of the 38.2% Fib expansion at 175.67.

Prices are wedged too closely between near-term support and resistance levels to justify taking a trade on a long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will continue to stand aside until a more attractive opportunity presents itself.
