USD/JPY Clears 116 As A Lack Of Reversal Signals Opens Further Gains
- Strategy: Long, Target: 117.90, Stop: 115.90 (Close)
- Focus Remains Higher With Hanging Man Lacking Validation
- Dojis Signal Enduring Tug-Of-War In Intraday Trade
USD/JPY is probing above the 115.90 ceiling in intraday trade with an absence of reversal signals opening the prospect of further gains. This leaves longs preferred with a potential target offered by the October ’07 high near 117.90. A daily close below 114.60 would be required to warn of a top for the pair.
