Pound-Yen ended the previous session at 162.4; currently trading at 161.47

Live - Updated 5 minutes ago.

Pound-Yen is grinding lower from 162.4 to 161.47, shedding 93 pips (0.58%) today.

Data for United Kingdom Services PMI (Jun) released yesterday at 8:30 AM comes out at 54.3, beating projections of 53.4 and showing improvement over the preceding figure of 53.4. United Kingdom Composite PMI (Jun) beats expectations of 53.1 with new data release of 53.7. This is also a step forward from the previous data of 53.1.

Nonetheless, encouraging indicators for Pound-Yen published earlier when following a previous reading of 56.4, Construction PMI (Jun) in United Kingdom released today at 8:30 AM fell short of the 55 figure expected by analysts with an actual reading of 52.6.

Trend analysis indicates that the Commodity Channel Index (CCI) indicator is below -100, meaning the market price is unusually low and below its rolling moving average. Technical analysis indicates that a new, strong downtrend could be forthcoming with short positions favored. Pound-Yen is flirting with the 161.21 Fibonacci support level. Asset volatility analysis shows that Bollinger bands shows an indication of recovery: the lower band is at 162.14, a low enough level to, generally, suggest that Pound-Yen is trading below its value. Chart analysis indicates the resistance level is at 162.53, followed by 168.29.

Overall, the technical outlook suggests Pound-Yen is likely to remain muted for the immediate future, with no clear-cut direction.
