Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: USD/JPY Touches Highest Level in 7-Years

Our patience with USD/JPY has finally started to pay off. The “breakout” from the multi-week bullish consolidation pattern in early February was anything but textbook as trading grinded to a halt for the rest of the month. Such action is not usually what one wants to see after a clear technical pattern gets triggered, but more importantly support levels did not waiver during this time. The latest push higher through key cyclical pivots at 120.80 and 121.65 suggests the broader dollar uptrend is finally attempting to reassert itself which should set the stage for a further advance in the weeks ahead. The 2007 high near 124.00 is a clear intermediate target. A move back under 120.00 would be concerning especially with sentiment so elevated, but only unexpected aggressive weakness under 118.40 would turn the technical picture overtly negative.
