Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
  • Daily Close Above 107.00 To Open Grind Towards 108.00
  • Correction Questionable Amid Void Of Reversal Candles

USD/JPYhas taken the next leap higher to reach the 107.00 target offered in recent reports. A void of bearish reversal signals casts some doubt on the possibility of a correction. A daily close above the 107.00 ceiling may set the pair up for a grind towards the next psychologically-significant hurdle at 108.00.
