  • EUR/USD remains in consolidation mode below the 3rd square root relationship of the year’s high
  • Our near-term trend bias is negative while below 1.1450
  • Important downside pivots are seen at 1.1260 and 1.1210 with weakness below needed to signal a broader downside resumption

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: USD/JPY Waiting On A Catalyst

The jury is still out on USD/JPY. What looked like a promising break from a multi-month consolidation at the start of the month has stagnated into a choppy mess over the past couple of weeks. Our bias is higher while key support at 118.20/40 holds, but we recognize that the longer the exchange rate lingers here the greater the possibility that things could morph into some sort of false pattern breakdown scenario. Strength above 119.60 is needed to re-instill some upside momentum in USD/JPY, but the real big upside pivot for us remains the late December high around 120.80 with traction above there needed to signal that a much more important move to the upside is indeed unfolding.
