- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 101.61 (50% Fib exp.), 101.28 (61.8% Fib exp.)
- Resistance: 101.94 (38.2% Fib exp.), 102.35 (23.6% Fib exp.)
The US Dollar continues to tread water against the Japanese Yen after prices met resistance below the 102.00 figure. Resistance is at 101.94, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that exposing the 23.6% level at 102.35. Alternatively, a daily close below support marked by the 50% Fibat 101.61opens the door for a test of the 61.8% expansion at 101.28.
The available trading range is too narrow to justify taking a trade on the long or the short side from a risk/reward perspective. We will remain on the sidelines for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
