GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Stalling Above 181.00 Figure

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Stalling Above 181.00 Figure

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 180.96, 178.80, 177.05
  • Resistance: 182.30, 184.03, 186.20

The British Pound continues to consolidate against the Japanese Yen after falling as expected following the formation of a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 180.96, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 178.80. Alternatively, a reversal above the 14.6% Fib at 182.30 clears the way for a challenge of the 61.8% Fib retracement at 184.03.

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.
