- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 102.28, 101.98, 101.80
- Resistance: 102.51, 102.75, 103.05
The US Dollar is attempting to regain traction against the Japanese Yen after hitting a two-week low beneath the 102.00 figure. A daily close above the 50% Fibonacci expansion at 102.51 exposes the 61.8% level at 102.75. Alternatively, a turn below the 38.2% Fib at 102.28 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% expansion at 101.98.
Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices sitting in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now.
