USD/JPY Harami Near 102.00 Offers Short-Term Range Play

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Longs preferred
  • Evening Star may be overlooked given nearby buying support
  • Harami in intraday trade suggests bounce back to range-top

USD/JPY remains compressed within a narrow trading range between 102.00 and 102.70. While an Evening Star pattern is evident on the daily, the bearish candlestick formation is made less significant by its formation within the persistent range.
