- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 118.88, 118.45, 117.91
- Resistance: 119.32, 119.86, 120.73
The US Dollar declined as expected against the Japanese Yen following the appearance of a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. A daily close below the 50% Fibonacci expansion at 118.88 exposes the 61.8% level at 118.45. Alternatively, rebound above the 38.2% Fib at 119.32 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% expansion at 119.86.
Prices are wedged too closely between near-term support and resistance levels to justify taking a trade on a long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will continue to stand aside until a more attractive opportunity presents itself.
