USD/JPY Bulls Lose Conviction As A Doji Highlights Hesitation Near 109

USD/JPY Bulls Lose Conviction As A Doji Highlights Hesitation Near 109

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Absence of Bearish Candlesticks Casts Doubt On A Correction
  • Daily Close Above 109.40 Needed To Open Ascent On 110.65

USD/JPYappears to have run out of steam near the 109 handle as a Doji highlights hesitation by the bulls to lead the pair higher. Yet amid a void of classic reversal patterns a correction is questionable. A daily close above the 109.40 mark could open the next leg higher towards the August ’08 high at 110.65.

The four hour chart may be offering an early warning of a potential pullback. An Evening Star formation has received confirmation and suggests a possible retreat for the pair to intraday buying support at 108.33. Yet given the context afforded by the daily, a further correction may be limited.
