USD/JPY Evening Star Near 103.00 Offers Ominous Warning

USD/JPY Evening Star Near 103.00 Offers Ominous Warning

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Pending Short
  • Failure To Breach 103.00 Casts Doubt On Gains
  • Evening Star Warns Of Drop To 102.20

USD/JPY’s pullback has yielded an Evening Star formation which may be the precursor to a further correction. Confirmation of the bearish reversal pattern from a successive down-day would suggest a retreat to the nearby floor at 102.20. A daily close above the 103.00 handle would be required to invalidate a bearish bias.

The four hour chart reveals a Harami pattern in intraday trade, which has generated an intraday bounce for USD/JPY. However, given the proximity to nearby selling pressure around 102.75/103.00 further gains may be limited. The emergence of a bearish reversal pattern would be taken as an opportunity to sell the pair with the immediate downside target of 102.25.
