USD/JPY Piercing Line Pattern May Find Limited Follow-Through

USD/JPY Piercing Line Pattern May Find Limited Follow-Through

David Ferranti,

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Piercing Line may find limited follow-through
  • Range between 101.20 and 102.77 remains in play

USD/JPY’s recent recovery has resulted in a Piercing Line candlestick pattern, which indicates the bulls may be set to stage a return. However, with confirmation from an ensuing up-day absent and the psychologically-significant 102.00 handle offering noteworthy resistance, the signal may fail to elicit a bounce back to the range-top at 102.77.

Similarly, the Piercing Line pattern also present on the four hour chart may fail to find much follow-through with resistance at 102.00 looming overhead.
