- GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 181.79, 180.84, 178.76
- Resistance: 184.27, 186.34, 187.79
The British Pound has stalled against the Japanese Yen, with prices oscillating in a narrow range below the 185.00 range. Near-term resistance is at 184.27, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 76.4% level at 186.34. Alternatively, a reversal below resistance-turned-support at 181.79 clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% Fib expansion at 180.84.
Prices are too close to resistance to justify entering long from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests that taking up the short side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
