GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Resistance Held at Triangle Top

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Resistance Held at Triangle Top

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 177.28, 175.77, 173.76
  • Resistance: 178.39, 180.18, 181.64

The British Pound remains locked in a familiar territory against the Japanese Yen but the outlines of a descending Triangle pattern hint at a downside bias. A daily close below the 14.6% Fibonacci retracementat 177.28 exposes Triangle support at 175.77. Alternatively, a reversal above 178.39, the intersection of Triangle top resistance and the 23.6% level, opens the door for a test of the 38.2% Fib at 180.18.

An actionable trade setup is absent at this point, arguing against committing to a directional bias on long or short side. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for a clear-cut trading opportunity to present itself in the days ahead.
