Forex Strategy: USD/JPY Hanging Man Results In Further Weakness

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Hanging man continues to warn of potential weakness
  • Stalling of the uptrend on the pair may open up support level at 102.00
  • Risk –reward at current prices is not optimal for new shorts

The recent uptrend in USD/JPY appears to have stalled following the formation of a Hanging Man candle pattern on the 4 hour chart. This comes as sellers continue to suppress gains in the pair around the 102.63 level of resistance.

A potential target for short positions is offered by the 102.00 support mark which coincides with the 38.2% Fib Retracement level. However, the risk-reward on new shorts at current levels is less than ideal.
