Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: USD/JPY Continues to Tease

USD/JPY continues to perplex. The pair started the week with a sharp break to the downside and below the 117.20 range extreme of the past few weeks. This weakness proved short lived, however, as the pair reversed sharply by the start of European trade to settle back into the middle of the narrow range that has defined trading these past few weeks. Our thoughts haven’t changed too much from last week in the sense that we are basically still waiting for a clear break of the range to set off the next real directional move. We think today’s close could help shed some light on the pair and that potential move as a close under 117.20 would warn that a more serious move to the downside is indeed starting to play out. A daily settlement back into the middle of the range (say north of 118.00) would suggest today’s foray to the downside was false. As we have mentioned before some of the best moves in FX stem from false breaks. As such this would probably be a pretty bullish development.
