Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Secondary High In USD/JPY?

USD/JPY came under pretty aggressive pressure overnight as spot seems to have responded to the cyclical relationships we highlighted last week (Read HERE). A daily close under 119.40 is now needed as this would be seen as initial confirmation of a “secondary high” and help set the stage for a more important decline around the start of the year. The near-term picture is complicated somewhat by the fact that Japan and most of the world is on holiday for the next few days, but as long as 120.80 holds the burgeoning negative structure will remain intact. A move through 120.80 would re-focus higher.
