Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Important Timing Relationship Beckons USD/JPY

A confluence of long-term cyclical relationships early next week in USD/JPY suggests this period will be significant for the exchange rate in a timing sense. With USD/JPY having reversed from the other turn window we highlighted at the start of the month we had assumed that spot would just selloff in between and form a low next week then turn back up. This could still play out, but the reversal over the past couple of days introduces the possibility that we see a secondary high next week and USD/JPY comes under pressure thereafter. Resistance levels to monitor for a potential reaction are 119.50, 120.70 and of course the year-to-date high near 121.85. New highs anytime after Christmas would be a very bullish development. The next big turn window after next week is the beginning of January.
