Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Longs preferred
  • Bearish reversal signal emerges following test of 104.00
  • Dip back to 103.50 to offer new long opportunities

The USD/JPY bulls have halted their charge at the psychologically-significant 104.00 handle. While a bearish reversal signal is lacking on the daily, intraday price action suggests the potential for a dip. A correction back to prior resistance at 103.50 would be seen as an opportunity to enter new long positions.

USD/JPY: 104.00 Prompts Bulls To Pause

Drilling down to the four hour chart; a test of the 104.00 handle in Asian trading has prompted the formation of a Hanging Man candlestick, which offers an ominous warning. However, the bearish reversal signal awaits confirmation from a successive down period, which if received, would likely prompt a dip back to 103.60
