USD/JPY Candlestick Analysis: Support Below 119.00 in Focus

USD/JPY Candlestick Analysis: Support Below 119.00 in Focus

Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Strategy: Flat
  • Downside Reversal Cues Remain
  • Waiting for Pullback to Get Long

The US Dollar is waiting for follow-through on bearish reversal cues against the Japanese Yen established by Dark Cloud Cover and Evening Star candlestick patterns. Negative RSI divergence seemingly reinforces the chance of a pullback. Support is at 118.91, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a move below that exposing the 23.6% level at 117.00. The first layer of resistance remains at 122.01, the March swing top.

The dominant long-term USD/JPY trend continues to look bullish. With that in mind, we will look at further losses as corrective and treat them as an opportunity to enter long at more attractive levels once the pullback is exhausted.
