GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Downturn Hinted at 190.00

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 188.81, 187.79, 185.01
  • Resistance: 190.00, 191.36, 193.57

The British may be preparing to turn lower against the Japanese Yen as prices form a Shooting Star candlestick coupled with negative RSI divergence. A daily close below trend line support at 188.81 exposes the December 29 high at 187.79. Alternatively, a push abovethe 189.70-190.00 area (December 5 high, 14.6% Fibonacci expansion) clears the way for a test of the 23.6% level at 191.36.

Confirmation of downward reversal is lacking for now absent a clear-cut break of trend line support, warning against entering a short trade. With that in mind, we will continue to stand aside for now and wait for a more actionable setup to present itself.
