USDJPY: Buyers Lose Grip on 80.00 Figure

USDJPY: Buyers Lose Grip on 80.00 Figure

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Strategy: Flat

USDJPY followed a pair of Shooting Star candlesticks below resistance in the 80.19-80.28 area with a drop to support at 79.74, the 50% Fibonacci expansion. A break below this boundary exposes the 61.8% level at 79.28, while a rebound that takes out near-term resistance exposes a falling trend line set from the mid-March high, now at 80.99. We see no actionable trade setup here at the moment and will stand aside until something more compelling develops.
