GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Key Trend Line Caps Advance

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Key Trend Line Caps Advance

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 182.36, 181.26, 179.46
  • Resistance: 183.51, 184.88, 187.79

The British Pound recoiled from trend line resistance capping the currency against the Japanese Yen since early December. Near-term support is at 182.36, the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 181.26. Alternatively, a reversal above trend line resistance at 183.51 clears the way for a challenge of the 76.4% Fib retracement at 184.88.

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.
