GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Candle Setup Hints at Bounce

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Candle Setup Hints at Bounce

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 178.44, 176.31, 174.80
  • Resistance: 180.47, 181.86, 182.98

The British Pound may be preparing to turn higher against the Japanese Yen after prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 180.47 exposes the 181.58-86 area (support-turned-resistance, 38.2% level). Alternatively, a push below rising trend line support at 178.44 opens the door for a test of triple bottom support at 176.31.

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.
