Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 101.52 (38.2% Fib exp.), 101.13 (50% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 102.01 (23.6% Fib exp.), 102.30 (14.6% Fib exp.)

The US Dollar moved lower as expected against the Japanese Yen after prices produced a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Near-term support is now at 101.52the 38.2%Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that exposing the 50% level at 101.13. Resistance is at 102.01, the 23.6% Fib. A daily close above this barrier opens the door for a challenge of the 14.6% expansion at 102.30.

Current positioning does not offer an actionable trade setup. We will opt to remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a more attractive opportunity to present itself.
