Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: USD/JPY - What Next?

The almost euphoric extremes in sentiment we have been writing about in USD/JPY over the past few weeks have finally taken their toll as the exchange rate has come under considerable pressure over the past few days. The big question now is this just going to be a quick multi-day affair or something longer and more sinister? This morning USD/JPY found support exactly where it should have if this is just going to be a quick cleansing as the decline stopped right at the 4th square root relationship of the year’s high near 117.40. The move higher in USD/JPY since 2011 has been littered with perfect square root corrective moves (February 2013 was exactly 4 square roots) so if the dollar uptrend is really set to resume then we wouldn’t really expect to see 117.40 tested again. As such, a move back down in the next few days or hours under 117.40 would turn things quite negative and open the way for a much more serious decline in the weeks (and dare we say months) ahead. A daily settlement back over 119.60 is now needed to undermine the near-term negative technical structure that has developed over the past few days. The end of next week/start of the week of December 22nd remains critical from a timing/cyclical perspective.
