USD/JPY Dark Cloud Cover Awaits Confirmation To Suggest A Correction

USD/JPY Dark Cloud Cover Awaits Confirmation To Suggest A Correction

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Dark Cloud Cover Pattern Awaits Confirmation
  • Close Below 108.00 Floor May Open 107.00

USD/JPY remains trapped within a narrow trading band as a Dark Cloud Cover pattern awaits confirmation. If confirmed by a successive down day and a close under the 108.00 floor a deeper correction to the 107.00 floor may ensue. However, some skepticism over a continued pullback may be warranted – given recent reversal signals have been met with some disdain by traders.

The four hour chart reveals an absence of bullish reversal formations. Alongside the context afforded by the daily, this casts some doubt on the potential for a recovery over the session ahead. Buying interest may be renewed at the pair’s recent lows near 108.00.
