- GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 189.72, 188.39, 186.97
- Resistance: 190.84, 192.27, 194.58
The British Pound continues to tread water below the 191.00 figure against the Japanese Yen, with negative RSI divergence still warning of ebbing upside momentum. Near-term trend line support is at 189.72, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 188.39. Alternatively, a move abovethe 14.6% Fib expansion at 190.84 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% level at 192.27.
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.
