USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Yen Recovery Tipped Ahead

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Yen Recovery Tipped Ahead

Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 108.22, 107.47, 106.24
  • Resistance: 109.22, 109.96, 110.71

The US Dollar could be carving out a top against the Japanese Yen marked by the formation of a bearish Harami candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 108.22, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 107.47. Alternatively, a push above the 38.2% Fib expansion at 109.22 clears the way for a test of the 50% threshold at 109.96.

Taken in isolation, a Harami formation does not amount to an actionable trade signal. With that in mind, we will stand aside for now pending further confirmation, waiting for an actionable setup to present itself.
