GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Support Below 187.00 at Risk

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Support Below 187.00 at Risk

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 186.87, 185.74, 184.60
  • Resistance: 188.27, 190.53, 192.80

The British Pound is attempting to turn lower against the Japanese Yen as expected after showing a Shooting Star candlestick with negative RSI divergence. Near-term support is at 186.87, the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 185.74. Alternatively, a move above the 76.4% Fib at 188.27 opens the door for a challenge of the 100% expansion at 190.53.

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.
