Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 172.17 (50% Fib exp.), 171.53 (38.2% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance:172.80 (61.8% Fib exp., Triangle top), 173.59 (76.4% Fib exp.)

The British Pound advanced for a sixth consecutive day against the Japanese Yen, moving to test key resistance at 172.80. This barrier is marked by the intersection of a Triangle chart pattern top and the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion. A break upward on a daily closing basis initially exposes the 76.4% level at 173.59. Alternatively, a reversal below the 50% Fib at 172.17 targets the 38.2% expansion at 171.53.

Prices are too close to relevant resistance to justify a long position from a risk/reward perspective. We will remain flat for the time being, waiting for a more attractive setup to present itself.
