Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 117.91, 116.87, 115.48
  • Resistance: 119.16, 120.82, 121.91

The US Dollar is testing the bottom of now-familiar range support below the 118.00 figure against the Japanese Yen once again. Near-term support is at 117.91, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing falling channel support at 116.87. Alternatively, a reversal above channel top resistance at 119.16 opens the door for a test of the December 23 high at 120.82.

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.
