Pound/Yen hovers around 153.78

Live - Updated 61 minutes ago.

After dipping down to 153.69, Pound/Yen regains earlier losses and reaches 153.78.

Uptick comes while some more positive signs for Pound/Yen are out as United Kingdom Composite PMI fall short of the 55 projections, with 53.4 and continued its downward trajectory from previous figure of 53.6. United Kingdom Manufacturing PMI published today at 9:30 AM came out at 56.9, falling short of the 57.7 projections and continuing its decline from the previous 57.9 figure. United Kingdom Services PMI published today at 9:30 AM came out at 53.3, falling short of the 53.9 projections and continuing its decline from the previous 53.6 figure.

In terms of trend indicators, we can see that although up today, it's worth noting that earlier GBP/JPY dropped below the 50 day Simple Moving Average as it was trading at 153.58, usually an indication that a negative trend is ahead. The CCI indicator is below -100. When the CCI (Commodity Channel Index) is at this level it means the price is below the average price as measured by the indicator, indicating a possible start of a new downtrend. As the day reaches an end a chart visual study suggests the nearest resistance level is at 157.33. Despite this, Pound/Yen's lower Bollinger band is at 153.72, indicating further gains might be next.

Overall, looking at the technical analysis landscape, it seems a positive reverse of course (in the short term) might be next for Pound/Yen.

While Pound/Yen is green so far today, the following assets are not doing so well- EUR/AUD broke through the 1.5851 resistance.

In the meantime, after four days of drops, USD/SGD is flat and hovering around 1.3463. The 0.7106 support line failed to hold and Aussie/Dollar dropped 35 pips below it.

The market is looking forward to the release of new data: United Kingdom CBI Industrial Trends Orders (Jan) is expected to come out at 22 when it's released tomorrow at 11:00 AM, this is a decline from the preceding data which was 24.

Pound/Yen has lost 1% this year.
