GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Slowly Inching Downward

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Slowly Inching Downward

Talking Points:

The British Pound is making cautious downward progress against the Japanese Yen after breaking two-month rising trend support. A daily close below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracementat 190.91 exposes the 38.2% level at 187.85. Alternatively, a reversal above the 14.6% Fib at 192.80 clears the way for a test of the 194.33-93 area (range floor support-turned-resistance, trend line).

We entered short GBPJPY at 192.83, initially aiming for 190.91. A stop-loss will be triggered on a daily close above 194.33. We will book half of the position and adjust the stop-loss to breakeven (192.83) prices reach the first target.
