Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Shorts preferred
  • Shooting Star on the daily plays out
  • Buyers may arrest declines at 101.40

The Shooting Star formation noted in recent reports has resulted in continued declines for USD/JPY. While a bearish bias is retained, further falls may be limited given strong buying support near the 101.40 mark. A break below there would afford new short entries would open up the 2014 low near 100.70.
