Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Shooting Star pattern near 104.00 offered ominous warning
  • Hammer on four hour chart hints at intraday bounce

USD/JPY has recovered some ground in recent trading, although sellers appear to be capping gains for the pair near the 101.70 mark. The daily chart may be set to post an Inside Day pattern, which could hint at more significant bounce. However, the current candle has yet to close and receive confirmation.
