GBP/JPY Price Forecast – British pound continues to struggle

The British pound initially rallied during the trading session on Wednesday but has ran into a significant amount of resistance at the ¥132 level yet again. Ultimately, this is a market that has been struggling overall, and therefore the fact that we have given back most of the gains should not be a huge surprise.

The British pound has rallied a bit during the trading session on Wednesday, as the British pound continues to go back and forth due to the headlines involving the Brexit. In this pair, it’s also a bit of a risk barometer that should be paid attention to, as traders continue to see headlines back and forth involving the US/China trade set up, which of course has a major effect on risk appetite around the world. There has been rumblings about the Chinese taking a “partial deal”, something that shows that China may be flexible, but at the end of the day the Americans are going to accept that.

The pair continues to fail at the ¥132 level, and therefore it should be paid attention to the scenario of failing not only there, but the 50 day EMA just above. Ultimately, this is a market that will probably continue to see a lot of back-and-forth action going forward, based upon the occasional headline. However, one thing that’s hard to deny is that the minefield that is Brexit and the US/China trade talks will continue to cause issues. And signs of uncertainty, most market sell off. This one will be any different obviously. To the downside, the ¥130 level should offer a certain amount of psychological support, so I would be aware of that potential on a selloff. Breaking through the ¥130 level, it’s likely that the market could go down to the ¥128 handle.
