GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Six-Week Resistance Under Fire

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Six-Week Resistance Under Fire

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 193.21, 192.37, 191.00
  • Resistance: 193.67, 194.58, 195.82

The British Pound is testing resistance capping gains since mid-June having rallied for a third consecutive day against the Japanese Yen. A daily close above trend line resistance at 193.67 exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 194.58. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 193.21 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% expansion at 192.37.

The available trading range is too narrow to justify entering a trade in line with our long-term Euro outlook 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.
