USD/JPY Pullback Sees Bearish Pattern Take Shape
- Strategy: Long, Target: 117.90, Stop: 115.90 (Daily Close)
- Bearish Engulfing Pattern Taking Shape On The Daily
- Four Hour Chart Flashed An Early Weakness Warning

A Bearish Engulfing pattern on the four hour chart offered an early warning of weakness for USD/JPY. A lack of bullish signals in intraday trade casts the risks towards buying interest at the 115.00 handle.
