USDJPY Price, Chart and Analysis:

  • USDJPY continues to push ahead but trading range is narrow.
  • RSI indicator warns of overbought conditions.

Q1 2019 Japanese Yen Analysis and Forecast.

USDJPYis treading water just under recent three-and-a-half months highsas the greenback continues its push higher. The pair trade above all three moving-averages, including the closely watched 200-dma, and now look set to break back above 112.00 and towards a cluster of horizontal resistance levels between 113.71 and 114.74, the November 2017 high print. Later in the session the ISM non-manufacturing and services composite PMI is released with expectations of a pick-up to 57.3 from January’s reading of 56.7.

A positive beat could trigger the next move higher in USDJPY, but the market is flashing one technical overbought signal with the RSI indicator currently just below 70, suggesting short-term caution.

Daily pivot points show resistance at 111.94 (R1) followed by 112.14 (R2) ahead of 112.49 (R3).
