GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Resistance Sub-179 in Focus

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Resistance Sub-179 in Focus

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 177.26, 175.77, 174.87
  • Resistance: 178.74, 179.94, 181.14

The British Pound renewed its push higher against the Japanese Yen, moving to challenge monthly highs near the 179.00 figure. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 178.74 exposes the 50% level at 179.94. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 177.26 opens the door for a test of the 175.77-176.35 area (triple bottom, 14.6% retracement).

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.
