GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Aiming at Monthly Bottom

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Aiming at Monthly Bottom

To receive Ilya's analysis directly via email, please SIGN UP HERE

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 177.10, 176.17, 175.02
  • Resistance: 178.03, 180.15, 181.08

The British Pound looks vulnerable to deeper losses against the Japanese Yen after prices cleared range support. A daily close below the 50% Fibonacci expansion at 177.10 exposes the 176.17-31 area (triple bottom, 61.8% level). Alternatively, a turn above the 38.2% Fib at 178.03 opens the door for a test of the 38.2% Fib retracement at 180.15.

The available trading range is too narrow to justify entering a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now, waiting for price action to offer a more compelling opportunity down the road.
