USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Invalidating Triangle Breakout?

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Invalidating Triangle Breakout?

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 118.81, 118.01, 116.76
  • Resistance: 120.82, 121.91, 123.88

The US Dollar recoiled downward against the Japanese Yen after seemingly securing an upside breakout earlier in the week. A daily close below Triangle top resistance-turned-support at 118.81 exposes the top of a recently broken channel at 118.01. Alternatively, a push above the December 23 high at 120.82 opens the door for a test of the 121.84-91 zone (December 8 high, 38.2% Fibonacci expansion).

An actionable trade setup is absent at this point, arguing against committing to a directional bias on long or short side. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for a clear-cut trading opportunity to present itself in the days ahead.
