USD/JPY Vertical Climb Leaves Lack Of Reversal Patterns In Its Wake
- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
- Clearance Of Key Hurdles Casts Spotlight Higher
- Next Definitive Level Offers Significant Upside Scope
USD/JPY’s astounding vertical ascent has left a lack of reversal signals in its path, suggesting the potential for further gains. The next definitive peak to offer a potential resistance region rests near 114.60, the December 2007 high. However, traders should also be wary of the recent weekend gap, given the tendency of such spaces to be filled which may prove a temporary setback. A daily close below the 110.00 barrier would be required to negate a bullish bias.
