Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Where To Next For USD/JPY?

The surprise announcement by the BOJ last week to expand monetary stimulus has seen USD/JPY storm higher. On Friday the pair took out the former year high at 110.10 and this morning it surpassed the key 112.40 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the 2002-2011 decline and the 261.8% extension of the first half of the year’s range at 113.10. The market has become seemingly unstoppable There is one major potential reaction zone ahead and that is the 78.6% retracement of the 2007-2011 decline at 113.75. Over the past year the exchange rate has reacted well to these long-term retracements so a reaction from the pair at this key resistance cannot be completely discounted – especially with sentiment back at multi-year extremes (DSI in JPY fell to just 3% bulls on Friday). From a longer-term Fibonacci perspective a multi-day close over this level would be very positive indeed and set the stage for an eventual push towards the next key cluster of resistance around 120.00.
