Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Bulls hesitate near key resistance as Doji forms
  • Bearish Engulfing pattern emerges on four hour chart

USD/JPY’s recovery has been capped at the psychologically-significant 102.00 handle. While a Doji appears to be forming, which signals hesitation from the bulls, we’re yet to see a reversal candlestick pattern appear on the daily.

An examination of intraday price action on the four hour chart reveals a Bearish Engulfing pattern, which may offer an early warning sign for USD/JPY. The reversal signal typically needs to receive confirmation from a successive down-period, which if received would suggest a correction to support at 101.60.
