USD/JPY At A Crossroads Near 108.00 With A Bearish Pattern In Its Wake
- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Dark Cloud Cover Receives Confirmation
- Close Below 108.00 Floor May Open 107.00
USD/JPY continues to keep traders in suspense near the 108.00 hurdle as a Dark Cloud Cover pattern warns of weakness. A close under the 108.00 floor may herald a deeper correction to the 107.00. However, some skepticism over a continued pullback may be warranted – given recent reversal signals have been met with some disdain by traders.
