Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Shorts preferred
  • A Dark Cloud Cover formation suggests further declines
  • Daily also hinting at a correction against the backdrop of an uptrend

The Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern on the four hour chart continues to warn of declines for USD/JPY following a break below the psychologically-significant 103.00 handle. The 50% Fib Retracement level appears to be offering some intraday support, however a break may quickly open up the 102.17 mark.

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, suggesting caution is needed when looking at shorts.
