USDJPY: Bears Press On Toward 77.00 Level

USDJPY: Bears Press On Toward 77.00 Level

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Strategy: Flat

Prices are approaching support at 77.47, the September 13 close, after taking out 77.96. A break below this boundary targets the bottom of an Andrew’s Pitchfork channel, now at 76.81. The 77.96 level has been recast as resistance, with a push back above that exposing the Pitchfork top now at 78.88. An actionable trade setup is absent for now and we will stand aside until something concrete presents itself.
