- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 119.42, 117.17, 115.48
- Resistance: 120.82, 121.91, 123.88
The US Dollar continues to push higher against the Japanese Yen, with prices trying to clear a path above the 121.00 figure. A daily close above the December 23 highat 120.82 exposes the intersection of the December 8 high and the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 121.91. Alternatively, a turn below the channel floor at 119.42 opens the door for a test ofthe January 21 low at 117.17.
Prices are too close to resistance to justify entering long from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests that taking up the short side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
