GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Short Trade Remains in Play

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Short Trade Remains in Play

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Short at 192.83
  • Support: 190.91, 187.85, 185.37
  • Resistance: 192.80, 194.33, 195.87

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 range floor support-turned-resistance at 194.33.

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.
