Forex Strategy: USD/JPY Eyes 104.90 As Reversal Signal Remains Absent

Forex Strategy: USD/JPY Eyes 104.90 As Reversal Signal Remains Absent

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Longs preferred
  • 1st target hit, looking for extension to 104.90
  • Absence of reversal signal suggests gains to continue

Following the breakout above 102.70 the initial target offered at 103.50 for USD/JPY has been hit. While the psychologically-significant level of 104.00 may put up some resistance, a bearish reversal signal remains absent on both the daily and four hour timeframes. This suggests a possible extension towards 104.90 over the coming days.

USD/JPY: Breaks Out Above 103.50
