Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Key Week For The Yen

The next few trading days should prove key for USD/JPY. Since the reversal in the exchange rate during the key cyclical period before Christmas (Read HERE) we have been open to the idea of a “surprise” move to the downside. Initially USD/JPY complied falling to a low of 115.84 on January 16th. However, since then weakness in the pair has been rather limited. Upside attempts have been limited as well leading to a pretty clear narrowing range/triangle consolidation on the daily chart. The general rule of thumb is that consolidations that follow such strong trends usually lead to a move back into the direction of the trend. The other rule of thumb is that breakouts from such patterns tend to occur after the 5th leg of the consolidation. One could make the case that the 5th leg of the current consolidation in USD/JPY ended on Friday which brings us back to why we think the next few trading days will prove important. If a bullish break is going to occur then this is probably the time that it should materialize. Over 118.85 would be initial evidence that such a move is unfolding, but over 119.65/75 is really required to “trigger” the pattern. Failure to gain much traction over 119.75 this week would suggest that our original view is still correct and that USD/JPY is at risk of rolling over as some of the strongest directional moves often come from failed pattern breaks. Under 116.35-115.85 would turn this concern into reality.
