USD/JPY Keeps Traders In Suspense Following Bullish Pattern Near 102.00
- 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 has kept traders in suspense as the pair teases at a run above the 102.00 handle post a Piercing Line pattern on the daily. However, with confirmation from an ensuing up-day absent and the pair drifting sideways on the daily, conviction amongst the bulls still appears to be lacking.

Similarly, a Piercing Line pattern also present on the four hour chart has been met with little fanfare by traders. Clearance of 102.10 is likely needed before suggesting a push back to the range-top near 102.75.
