Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Shorts preferred
  • Prices breaking below recent range-bottom
  • Bearish Engulfing pattern suggests sellers in control

USD/JPY looks to be finally breaking its narrow range between 102.00 and 102.70 in early European trading. The emergence of a Shooting Star formation suggests the bears may be looking to firm their grip on prices. A daily close below 102.00 would be seen as an opportunity to enter short with a target offered by the next level of support at 101.20.

Examining the four hour chart, the Bearish Engulfing pattern near 102.70 has resulted in extended declines for USD/JPY. While a Gravestone Doji suggests some hesitation from sellers, a bounce may be limited in intraday trade, given nearby support-turned-resistance at 102.00.
