USD/JPY Keeps Traders In Suspense As Dojis Endure Near Key Support
- Strategy: Long, Target: 119.80, Stop: 117.80 (Daily Close)
- Dojis Suggest Bulls Lacking Fuel Near Key Support
- Intraday Trade Reveals Reluctance From Traders
USD/JPY continues to tease traders near the 117.90 support region as a string of Dojis suggest hesitation from traders. Yet with more definitive bearish reversal signals lacking a correction is questionable and longs are still preferred. The next upside target to work with is at the 119.80 barrier.

The four hour chart tells a similar story to the daily with a snaking series of short-body candles suggesting caution in intraday trade. An absence of clearer cues from candlesticks leaves a more constructive setup desired.
