Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 101.12, 100.92, 100.71-75
  • Resistance: 101.32, 101.78, 102.25

The Japanese Yen may be positioning for a larger recovery against the US Dollar after clearing a major technical barrier. A break below 101.32, the intersection of a horizontal support shelf and a Triangle pattern bottom, both dating back to early February, hints at a sizable bearish reversal in the works. A daily close below 101.12, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, exposes the 50% level at 100.92. Alternatively, a move back above 101.32 initially targets the July 16 high at 101.78.

The available trading range is too narrow to justify a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for an actionable trade setup to emerge.
