USD/JPY Traders Await Clearer Guidance As A Doji Signals Hesitation
- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Doji Signals Hesitation From The Bulls Near 106.80
- H4 Chart Candlestick Formations Indicate Indecision
USD/JPY’s price compression has yielded a Dragonfly Doji on the daily, which suggests hesitation from traders near 107.00. As noted in recent reports a clean run higher was likely to prove challenging, given the congestion between current levels and the recent peak at 110. This leaves a clearer directional bias desired before adopting fresh positioning.
