Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 168.08 (50% Fib exp.), 166.79 (61.8% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 169.37 (38.2% Fib exp.), 170.97 (23.6% Fib exp.)

The British Pound continues to tread water having fallen as expected against the Japanese Yen, with prices oscillating above the 50% Fibonacci expansion at 168.08. A break downward on daily closing basis initially aims for the 61.8% level at 166.79. Alternatively, a turn above resistance at 169.37 – the 38.2% Fib – exposes the 23.6% expansion at 170.97.

Prices are too close to relevant near-term up- and downside technical barriers to make a trade at current levels attractive from a risk/reward perspective. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for a more attractive setup to present itself.
