USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Is a Bottom in the Works?

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Is a Bottom in the Works?

Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 106.50, 105.57, 104.50
  • Resistance: 107.31, 108.63, 109.70

The US Dollar may be readying to resume its advance against the Japanese Yen after producing a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 107.31, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 108.63. Alternatively, a turn back below the 14.6% Fib at 106.50 clears the way for a challenge of the 50% Fib retracement at 105.57.

The available trading range is too narrow to justify a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines for now until a more attractive opportunity presents itself.
