GBP/JPY Rallies Up to Fibonacci Resistance, Fresh Two-Month Highs

GBP/JPY Rallies Up to Fibonacci Resistance, Fresh Two-Month Highs

James Stanley, Senior Strategist

Talking Points:

- GBP/JPY has just set a fresh two-month high after finding a bit of resistance at the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement of the ‘Brexit move’ in the pair.

- GBP/JPY has put in strength so far in April, continuing the March advance after the February sell-off. The door remains open for topside as the pair continues to show signs of recovery after the aggressive sell-off that showed earlier in Q1.

GBP/JPY Recovery Continues

GBP/JPY continues to show signs of recovery from the February sell-off when the pair shed more than 1,000 pips in less than a month. Support showed-up around the 145.00 psychological level on the second trading day of March , and after spending the rest of the month gyrating-higher, the pair has rallied into the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement of the Brexit-move in the pair.

GBP/JPY Daily Chart: Rally to 76.4% Fibonacci Resistance of the Brexit Move

Going along with this bullish advance has been a break back-above the post-Brexit trend-line, and this had helped to offer multiple points of resistance in the month of March. In our last article, we looked at the premise of topside breaks back-above the 150.00 level to open the door for bullish exposure, and we took this a step further by focusing-in on the level of 150.80. This is the 50% retracement of the February sell-off in the pair, and at this point, this area can help to mark a zone with which bulls can look to for higher-low support.

On the hourly chart below, we’re incorporating a group of swing highs from late-March to help produce a support zone above the 150.00 psychological level. Price action finding support in this zone opens the door for topside exposure, targeting towards the 152.50 psychological level.
