USD/JPY Bulls Lose Appetite As Doji Puts Range-Bottom In Focus

USD/JPY Bulls Lose Appetite As Doji Puts Range-Bottom In Focus

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Pending Long
  • Doji suggests bulls losing steam after bounce off-range-bottom
  • Absence of reversal patterns cast doubt on an intraday recovery

The USD/JPYbulls have seemingly lost steam in recent trading with the pair posting a Doji formation on the daily. While not a key reversal pattern, the sign of indecision may suggest a loss of confidence to push the pair higher. This puts the all-important 101.20 mark back in focus.

Scrutinizing the four hour chart; despite USD/JPY testing intraday support at 101.45, bullish reversal patterns are absent. This casts doubt over the potential for a bounce over the session ahead. A break lower would set the stage for a drop to 101.20/5.
