Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
  • Absence of Bearish Candlesticks Casts Doubt On A Correction
  • Daily Close Above 107.00 May Open Grind Towards 108.00

USD/JPY has rocketed higher from the 107.00 launch pad with a void of bearish candlesticks in its trail. The daily close above the 108 hurdle may set the pair up for a grind towards the next psychologically-significant ceiling at 109.00.

USD/JPY has finally cleared the congestion zone between 107.00 and 107.40. While a Dark Cloud Cover pattern has emerged near 108.80, the key reversal pattern awaits confirmation before suggesting a potential correction. Given the context afforded by the daily a break higher would be preferred before looking at new long positions.
