USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Turn Lower May Be Ahead

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Turn Lower May Be Ahead

Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 117.78, 116.96, 115.71
  • Resistance: 119.05, 120.27, 121.79

The US Dollar is stalling against the Japanese Yen, with a Shooting Star candlestick warning that a top may be in the works. A daily close below rising channel floor support at 117.78 exposes the 14.6% level at 116.96. Alternatively, a push above the 50% Fib expansion at 119.05 clears the way for a challenge of the 61.8% threshold at 120.27.

Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests that taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind we will remain flat for now.
