Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 180.18, 178.39, 177.28
  • Resistance: 181.64, 183.09, 184.88

The British Pound paused its advance against the Japanese Yen, issuing the largest decline in two weeks. Near-term resistance is at 180.64, the 50% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 61.8% level at 183.09. Alternatively, a push below the 38.2% Fib at 180.18 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% retracement at 178.39.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
