Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Bulls Return Following Lack Of Reversal Signals
  • Daily Close Above 109.40 Needed To Open 110.65

USD/JPYhas pushed past the 109.40 barrier after the pair was left with a lack of negative cues from candlesticks. A daily close above the mark may help confirm whether there is enough conviction amongst the bulls to lead a charge to towards the August ’08 high near 110.65.
