Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:171.46 (38.2% Fib exp.), 170.05 (23.6% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 172 .61 (50% Fib exp.), 173.56-75 (Mar 7 high, 61.8% Fib exp.)

The British Pound is stalling below the March swing high against the Japanese Yen after eight consecutive days in positive territory. Near-term resistance is at 172.61, the 50%Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that aiming for the 173.56-75 area marked by March 7 high and the 61.8% level. Initial support is at 171.46, the 38.2% Fib, with a daily close below that targeting the 23.6% expansion at 170.05.

Prices are too close to relevant resistance to justify a long position from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal argues against taking up the short side. We will remain on the sidelines for now.
