Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 101.52, 101.06, 100.81
  • Resistance: 101.81, 102.04, 102.25-28

The US Dollar is stalling after hitting a three-week high below the 102.00 figure against the Japanese Yen. Near-term resistance is at 101.81, the intersection of the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion and a falling channel top set from early June. A daily close above that initially exposes the 50% level at 102.04. Alternatively, a turn below the 23.6% Fib at 101.52 clears the way for a test of 101.06, the July 10 low.

Prices are too close to resistance to justify entering long from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal argues against taking up the short side. We will remain flat for now.
