- GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 190.84, 189.80, 187.88
- Resistance: 192.27, 194.58, 196.45
The British Pound continues to push higher against the Japanese Yen, hitting levels unseen since September 2008. A daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci expansionat 192.27 exposes the 38.2% level at 194.58. Alternatively, a move below the 14.6% Fib at 190.84 clears the way for a test of resistance-turned-support at 189.80.
Prices are wedged too closely between near-term support and resistance levels to justify taking a trade on a long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will continue to stand aside until a more attractive opportunity presents itself.
