USD/JPY Clears 102.00 As Harami Suggests Further Gains

USD/JPY Clears 102.00 As Harami Suggests Further Gains

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
  • Push back above 120.00 opens 102.70
  • Harami pattern supports further gains

USD/JPY’s push past 102.00 following the Harami formation on the daily puts the next noteworthy resistance level at 102.70 on the cards. The absence of a bearish signal on the daily and four hour charts gives little indication of a potential intraday reversal.
