USD/JPY 30min

USDJPY Breakout Testing Initial Resistance Ahead of U.S. GDP

Notes:USDJPY has been trading within the confines of a well-defined median-line formation with today’s rally stretching into the first level of significant resistance at 124.13/35. This zone is defined by the 2007 high, the 1.618% extension of the advance off the December low, near-term MLP resistance & a slope line extending off the January 2015 high (daily chart).

Intra-week divergence into the highs leaves the pair vulnerable for a pullback below this threshold with a break below the highlighted region into 123.53 shifting the near-term focus towards the lower MLP / 122.97. The broader bias remains constructive while above the 122-handle.

Bottom line: We’ll be looking for either a break above 124.35 or a break below this formation for guidance heading into June trade with the broader bias weighted to the topside above 122. A topside break keeps the long bias in play targeting 125 backed by 125.67/70. The average true range is rather tight here so to accommodate the near-term breakout we’ll look for a larger portion of the range with a third of the daily ATR yielding profit targets of 26-29 pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into U.S. event risk tomorrow morning with end of week/month flows also likely to fuel added volatility in USD crosses.
