The USDJPY has failed to breakout to higher highs, as many other Yen pairs have done this morning. The USDJPY can be considered range bound as long as price remains under the R4 pivot at 108.21. In the event price moves back below Range Resistance at 108.01, traders can again begin looking for reversals towards support. Price support currently sits at the S3 pivot at a price of 107.60 which completes todays 41 pip trading range.

In the event that the R4 pivot does break, traders can begin looking for continued bullish momentum on the USDJPY back in the direction of last week’s trend. Conversely, a move through support and below the S4 pivot at 107.39, would signal a larger price reversal on the creation of a new lower low. In either breakout scenario the range would be considered concluded, at which point reversal traders can consider new orders in the direction of the breakout.
