In my final technical put up on the GBPJPY final week, I spoke concerning the significance of the 100-hour shifting common. That shifting common has been a degree of assist (and resistance) going again in time as a market trended to the upside.
Don Friday, the worth fell under that 100-hour shifting common and then used that shifting common as resistance earlier than shifting sharply to the draw back testing the 38.2% retracement and bouncing larger into the shut of the week.
Today, the worth excessive moved up to the underside of the damaged development line and rotated again to the draw back. The value fell under the 200-hour shifting common and continued the run decrease within the European/early US session. That run took the worth to the 50% midpoint of the vary because the October 30 low AND additionally to a swing area between 184.51 and 184.66.
That twin assist goal did discover assist wires and the worth has rotated again towards the damaged 38.2% retracement at 185.403.
Move above the 38.2% retracement and merchants will look towards 185.87 – 96 area.
Conversely, maintain resistance in opposition to 185.40, and rotated again towards the 50% retracement and swing area close to 184.51 – 66 could be the main goal
