USD/JPY Continued Consolidation Leaves Cues From Candlesticks Lacking

USD/JPY Continued Consolidation Leaves Cues From Candlesticks Lacking

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Hanging Man Candlestick Fails To Find Follow-Through
  • Daily Close Above 109.40 Needed To Open 110.65

USD/JPYcontinues its consolidation around the 109.00 level after a Hanging Man failed to inspire the bears to drag the pair below 108.50. A daily close below the nearby level of buying support would be required to herald a deeper correction to the psychologically-significant 107.00 handle. In the alternative scenario if the bulls can manage to firm their grip on prices and catalyze a close above the 109.40 ceiling it could open the next leg higher towards the August ’08 high at 110.65.
