USDJPY: Standstill Persists Above 80.00
Broadly speaking, USDJPY has done relatively little over the past six months, with prices firmly range-bound between 80.23 and 84.80. A Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern completed in November has not triggered follow-through nor succumbed to invalidation, hinting at a cautiously bullish bias amid current consolidation. With that in mind, the acute uncertainly hanging over prices in the aftermath of the G7 intervention argues strongly for a position on the sidelines until the dust settles and a clear course can be charted.
