Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Dark Cloud Cover Warns Of Further Weakness
  • Dojis On H4Suggests Some Reluctance Sub 108

USD/JPY’s slide under the 108.00 floor following a Dark Cloud Cover pattern warns of further weakness for the pair. Thus far the descent has proven slow with a string of several short body candles highlighting some hesitation from the bears to lead the pair lower. Yet with bullish candlesticks lacking a deeper correction to the 107.00 barrier may be on the cards.
