Talking Points:

  • GBP/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 173.98, 173.44, 173.13
  • Resistance: 174.50, 175.35, 175.75

The British Pound may have set a top against the Japanese Yen after prices put in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Sellers are aiming to challenge support at 173.98, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the bottom of a firing channel at 173.44. Alternatively, a move back above the 14.6% level at 174.50 initially opens the door for another challenge of the July 3 high at 175.35.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices sitting in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now.
