GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: Charting another bearish lower-high amid Brexit uncertainty

  • The GBP/JPY pair's bounce from the 3.5-month low of 141.18 seems to have ended up carving another bearish lower-high pattern near 142.40.
  • That validates yesterday's bearish daily close below 142.77 (Oct. 26 low) and the downward sloping 5- and 10-day simple moving averages (SMAs), which indicate the path of least resistance is to the downside.
  • As a result, the pair risks re-testing overnight lows of 142.40.
  • The UK PM May's decision to delay the Brexit vote in the face of broad opposition is yet another blow for companies desperate for clarity. As a result, both the British Pound and risky assets will likely remain on the defensive. The latter, in particular, will likely keep the JPY better bid.
