- GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 186.87, 185.74, 184.60
- Resistance: 188.27, 190.53, 192.80
The British Pound is working on the longest winning streak in 13 months after rising for a sixth consecutive day against the Japanese Yen. A daily close above the 76.4% Fibonacci expansionat 188.27 exposes the 100% level at 190.53. Alternatively, a turn below the 61.8% Fib at 186.87 opens the door for a test of the 50% expansion at 158.74.
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.
