GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Positioning Inconclusive for Now

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Positioning Inconclusive for Now

Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 192.74, 191.32, 190.11
  • Resistance: 194.89, 195.89, 197.10

The British Pound remains locked in consolidation mode above the 193.00 figure against the Japanese Yen. A daily close above trend line resistance at 194.89 exposes the 195.82-89 area (38.2% Fibonacci expansion, June 18 high). Alternatively, a turn below trend line support at 192.74clears the way for a test of the 38.2% Fib retracement at 191.32.

Positioning is inconclusive at this point, with prices offering no clear-cut and actionable signal to initiate a long or short trade. We will continue to remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a compelling opportunity to present itself.
