Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Overnight Volatility In USD/JPY But Key Support Holds

There was some wild price action in USD/JPY overnight as the exchange rate fell almost 2 big figures on the back of comments from the BOJ that they see consumer sentiment getting hurt by a further decline in the yen. Interestingly the high yesterday came right at the 120.50 78.6% retracement of the December range which is oftentimes a natural stalling point. The decline this morning while aggressive did stop where it needed to as a convergence of various Gann and Fibonacci levels between 118.40/70 held smartly leading to an immediate 100-pip rebound. As we mentioned yesterday, the breakout last week from the multi-month consolidation looks valid and today’s hold of key support seems to further support this view. A push through 120.50/80 is now needed to re-instill upside momentum and confirm the start of a new leg higher in the exchange rate. We do have some concern of a potential false pattern breakout following the violent move overnight, but only weakness under this week’s low at 118.40 would turn this concern into a reality.
