USD/JPY Hanging Man Awaits Confirmation To Warn Of A Correction

USD/JPY Hanging Man Awaits Confirmation To Warn Of A Correction

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
  • Reversal Signal Arises At Critical 108.00 Handle
  • H4 Chart Suggests Bears’ Confidence Is Lacking

USD/JPY has flashed a warning sign of a potential pullback in the form of a Hanging Man candlestick. Critically, the key reversal pattern awaits validation from an ensuing down-session. Longs are preferred until confirmation and a close below the 108.00 hurdle is witnessed. This in turn would warn of a deeper correction to the 105.40 floor.

A Bearish Engulfing formation on the four chart offers another negative signal for traders. Yet thus far there has been limited follow-through from two successive Doji candlesticks. This suggests some reluctance from the bears to drag USD/JPY lower over the session ahead.
