USD/JPY 240min

USD/JPY 240min Chart

Technical Outlook: USDJPY has been trading within the confines of an ascending pitchfork formation extending off the August & September lows with the weekly opening range taking shape just below near-term confluence resistance at the upper parallel. This region converges on the May high at 111.45 with more significant resistance seen at the 50% retracement of the decline off the 2015 high at 112.29 – both of these levels are areas of interest for near-term exhaustion / short-entries.

Interim support rests at 109.76 backed by near-term bullish invalidation at 108.57 (area of interest for long-entries). From a trading standpoint, heading into tomorrow’s U.S. Durable Goods Orders and subsequent release of the FOMC minutes, the immediate advance is at risk heading into structural resistance and we’ll be looking for a pullback to offer more favorable long entries off the median-line.
