Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Pending Short
  • Shooting Star formation on daily suggests correction
  • Break below 102.80 may open up 101.80 mark

A Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern on the four hour chart is warning of potential declines for USD/JPY as the pair struggles near the psychologically significant 103.00 handle. A break below 102.80 (38.2% Fib Retracement level) would likely open up former support at 101.80.

The daily chart has also revealed the potential for a correction given the Shooting Star formation near 103.50, which has received confirmation from a successive down day. However, an uptrend is also evident on the daily, demonstrated by prices being above the 20 SMA. As such shorts would be seen as only a short-term counter-trend opportunity.
