USD/JPY Focus Turns Higher After Bearish Pattern Denied Validation
- Strategy: Flat
- Focus Turns Higher With Bearish Signals Lacking Confirmation
- Monitoring Intraday Chart Closely For Reversal Warning Signs
USD/JPY has managed to keep its head above the 114.60 floor, leaving a Bearish Engulfing formation lacking confirmation. While a Hanging Man is now in its wake – it requires a successive down-session to be validated. This may prove difficult given the proximity to nearby support. This suggests a possible resumption of the push higher towards the recent peaks near 115.90.
