USDJPY: Long Attempted Above 81.00
USDJPY put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern at the bottom of a falling channel that had guided the pair lower from April’s swing top, then followed through with a break above the formation’s top as well as the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the same move lower at 80.96. I will enter long from here (81.09), initially targeting the 38.2% Fib at 81.83. A stop-loss will be activated on a daily close below 80.74.
