- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 106.99. 106.44, 105.77
- Resistance: 107.54, 108.22, 109.31
The US Dollar is stalling above the 107.00 figure against the Japanese Yen as prices await the FOMC monetary policy announcement. Near-term resistance is at 107.54, the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 76.4% level at 108.22. Alternatively, a turn below the 50% Fib at 106.99 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% expansion at 106.44.
Prices are wedged too closely between near-term support and resistance levels to justify entering a trade from a risk/reward perspective. We will continue to stand aside for the time being, waiting for an actionable opportunity to emerge.
