USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Yen Remains on the Defensive

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Yen Remains on the Defensive

Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 101.32, 101.12, 100.92
  • Resistance: 101.47, 101.88, 102.25

The Japanese Yen remains under pressure as the US Dollar continues to rise after clearing key support-turned-resistance at 101.32, a barrier in play since February. Buyers are testing above falling trend line resistance at 101.47, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing downward-sloping channel top at 101.88. Alternatively, a move back below 101.32 opens the door for another challenge of the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 101.12.

Entering long seems premature absent confirmation of a break above resistance. On the other hand, taking up the short side lacks support from a defined bearish reversal signal. We will continue to stand aside for the time being.
