USD/JPY Awaiting Next Break With Bearish Signals Lacking
- Strategy: Long > 115.90, Target: 117.90, Stop: 115.90 (Close)
- Focus Remains Higher With Bearish Signals Lacking
- Dojis Signal Enduring Tug-Of-War In Intraday Trade
USD/JPY has powered higher in recent trade, leaving a Hanging Manformation to fall flat. With bearish signals lacking the pair may be primed for further gains. Clearance of the nearby 115.90 hurdle could pave the way for an ascent on the October ’07 high near 117.90. A daily close below 114.50 would be required to warn of a top for the pair.

Tensions are running high in intraday trade, as evidenced by a string of Dojiformations on the four hour chart. Yet a lack of more definitive reversal signals suggests the bulls may yet regain their grip on prices to lead the charge higher.
