USD/JPY Awaiting Bullish Reversal Signal Near Noteworthy Floor
- Strategy: Flat
- Awaiting Bullish Turning Signal Near Key Support At 115.40
- Reversal Signal On H4 Chart Does Little To Inspire The Bulls
USD/JPY has maintained a downward trajectory in the wake of a Dark Cloud Cover formation. Bullish reversal signals appear lacking at this stage, which casts doubt on a bounce. Yet it can still be argued that the longer-term uptrend remains. Coupled with support at 115.40 the prospect of fresh declines is questionable.

The four hour chart appears choppy in recent trade with a Bullish Engulfing formation receiving little follow-through. This in turn does little to inspire confidence in a corrective bounce over the session ahead. A climb over 116.80 may be required to recast the risks higher for the pair.
