USD/JPY Hits Its Next Hurdle With Key Reversal Signals Lacking

USD/JPY Hits Its Next Hurdle With Key Reversal Signals Lacking

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Pending Long
  • Bulls Losing Steam Near 104.00 Ceiling
  • Correction Doubtful With Reversal Signals Lacking

USD/JPY’s rapid ascent has lost momentum near the critical 104.00 barrier. While some profit-taking may yield a slight corrective pullback, the absence of key reversal patterns keeps the near-term risk higher. A daily close above the nearby hurdle would likely set the scene for a run on the late January highs near 104.85.

The four hour chart should be closely monitored for early indications of a possible intraday pullback. A Hanging Man is emerging, yet awaits confirmation from a close of the current candle and successive down-period to be confirmed. A retreat is likely to be met by buying support at the psychologically-significant 103.00 handle.
