- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 123.04, 122.13, 121.41
- Resistance: 124.49, 125.95, 126.85
The US Dollar is working on the seventh consecutive day on the upside against the Japanese Yen, extending the longest winning streak in nine months. Near-term resistance is at 124.49, the 100% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 123.6% level at 125.95. Alternatively, a turn below the 76.4% Fibat 123.04 clears the way for a test of the 61.8% expansion at 122.13.
Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to present itself.
