USD/JPY Harami Awaits Confirmation To Signal Corrective Bounce
- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Harami CandlestickPattern Awaiting Confirmation
- Doji On H4Suggests Reluctance Near 106.00
USD/JPY awaits confirmation of a Harami pattern on the daily, which if received may herald a corrective move higher for the pair. Yet a more sustained recovery may be challenging given the congestion between current levels and the recent peak at 110. In the alternate scenario a pullback below the 105.40 floor would open the next leg lower to 104.25.

A pair of Doji formations on the four hour chart suggests hesitation from traders near 106.00. This does little to inspire confidence in the potential for a recovery over the session ahead. Sellers are likely to return at former support-turned-resistance at 106.80.
