USD/JPY Short Body Candles Suggest Caution Persists Near 107.00

USD/JPY Short Body Candles Suggest Caution Persists Near 107.00

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Short Body Candles Highlight Hesitation Near 107.00
  • H4 Chart Candlestick Formations Indicate Indecision

USD/JPY’s medley of short body candles and a Doji formation suggests a lack of conviction from traders as hovers near the 107.00 handle. As noted in recent reports a clean ascent from 105.40 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.

The four hour chart tells a similar story to the daily with a parade of short-body candles highlighting hesitation from traders near 107.50. Yet an absence of key reversal patterns near the ceiling casts doubt on a potential correction over the session ahead.
