USD/JPY Soars Past 111 As Void Of Bearish Signals Opens Further Gains
- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
- Clearance Of Key Hurdles Casts Spotlight Higher
- Next Definitive Level Offers Significant Upside Scope
USD/JPY’s rocket through several technical barriers amid a void of bearish candlesticks suggests the potential for further gains. The next definitive peak to define potential resistance rests at 114.60, the December 2007 high. This suggests significant scope for a continued advance. A daily close below the 110.00 barrier would be required to negate a bullish bias.
