Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY has broken under a key Gann convergence in the 97.60 area to trade to its lowest level in over a month

  • A medium-term cycle turn window is seen here
  • A weekly close under 97.60 will turn the outlook negative and focus will turn to 95.85

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: Will stop out of tactical longs on a weekly close below 97.60.
