Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 102.65 (23.6% Fib exp.), 101.96 (38.2% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance:103.75 (Mar 7 high)

The Japanese Yen may be preparing to launch a recovery against the US Dollar after USD/JPY produced a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 102.65, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 101.96. Near-term resistance is at 103.75, the March 7 high.

Prices are too close to relevant support to justify a short position from a risk/reward perspective, while a viable reversal signal arguing in favor of a long trade is absent. We will remain on the sidelines for now until a more actionable setup presents itself.
