- Pullback to Yield Long Trade Opportunity
The US Dollar looks to be forming a top against the Japanese Yen marked by bearish Dark Cloud Cover and Evening Star candlestick patterns. Negative RSI divergence bolsters the case for a downside scenario. A break below the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 118.91 exposes the 23.6% level at 117.00. Near-term resistance is at 122.01, the March swing top.
The overall USDJPY trend continues to favor the upside. With that in mind, we will look to any on-coming losses as an opportunity to enter long at more attractive levels once the downswing is exhausted.
