Japanese Yen Potential Resistance (USDJPY Support) at 8100 and 8060
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
As the USDJPY is wont to do, it lulled traders to sleep and then moved violently (in this case lower). There may be some support from former resistance at 8106 as well as the 61.8% retracement of the rally from 7956 at 8060 but the rally from 7956 is not clearly impulsive therefore a test of 7956 cannot be ruled out. Clarity is lacking.
Support/Resistance Index (M,W,D) – 0, 0, (3)
