USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Quiet Consolidation Continues

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Quiet Consolidation Continues

Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 118.78, 118.02, 117.08
  • Resistance: 120.79, 121.55, 122.31

The US Dollar remains in digestion mode, with prices drifting sideways below the 121.00 figure against the Japanese Yen. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 120.79 exposes the 50% level at 121.55. Alternatively, a reversal below the 50% Fib retracement at 118.78 opens the door for a challenge of the 61.8% threshold at 118.02.

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.
