USD/JPY Technical Analysis: 3-Month Uptrend Broken?
USD/JPY Technical Analysis- Prices declined as expected after putting in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. The pair is testing below support at a rising trend line set from late February, a barrier reinforced by the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at 95.76, to challenge the 76.4% level at 93.88. A drop beneath the latter juncture exposes swing lows at 92.56 and 90.84. Alternatively, a move back above 95.76 aims for the 96.70-97.28 area (marked by the 50% retracement and the March 12 high).
