Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY fell to its lowest level in over a month yesterday before finding support just under 122.00
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in USD/JPY while below 124.40
  • A key downside attraction remains the December/March closing highs at 121.40
  • A turn window of some importantance is seen here
  • A close back over 124.40 would turn us positive on rate

Focus Chart of the Day: USDOLLAR

The medium-term picture at the moment in the FXCM US Dollar Index (equally weighted basket of USD versus EUR, JPY, GBP & AUD) couldn’t be less clear. There is some risk that a broader topping pattern is tracing out, but it would take a move under the May lows (and 200-day moving average) around 11,600 to confirm such a negative shift. There is also plenty of risk that the correction against the primary uptrend has already run its course and USD is set to head higher again, but traction above the June high (and 78.6% retracement of the April-May decline) is desperately needed to confirm such a resumption. In the near-term with the index content to hover around the 50-day moving average (currently 11,850) there is little to do but wait and let things play out. The spike high from Monday at 11,922 and the mid-June low near 11,730 are more immediate pivots to monitor.
