USDJPY: Rebound Stalls Below Channel Top
Prices put in a Doji candlestick at resistance marked by the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement (78.45), a barrier reinforced by the top of a falling channel set from late June (78.70), hinting a reversal lower may be ahead. Initial support lines up at 77.95, the 23.6% Fib, with a break below that exposing 77.47. Alternatively, a push above the channel top initially targets the 50% retracement at 78.87. An actionable trade setup is absent for now and we will stand aside until something concrete presents itself.
