GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: 11-Week Trend Line Under Fire

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: 11-Week Trend Line Under Fire

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 182.08, 180.80, 178.73
  • Resistance: 183.21, 184.27, 186.34

The British Pound are testing pivotal resistance against the Japanese Yen as prices challenge the bounds of the down trend played out since early December. A daily close above trend line resistance at 183.21 exposes the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at 184.27. Alternatively, a turn below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 182.08 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% level at 180.80.

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