USD/JPY Grind Higher Continues Following Bullish Harami Formation
- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Harami CandlestickPattern Delivers Further Gains
- Doji On H4Suggests Reluctance Near Intraday Resistance
USD/JPY has continued its cautious recovery on the back of a Harami pattern on the daily. The confirmation from a successive up-period and close above the 106.80 barrier indicates the potential for further gains. Yet a clean run higher 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 Doji formation on the four hour chart suggests hesitation from traders near intraday resistance at 107.50. This does little to inspire confidence in the potential for a further recovery over the session ahead. Yet an absence of key reversal candlesticks also suggests a correction is questionable.
