USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Opting to Pass on Long Trade

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Opting to Pass on Long Trade

Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 125.20, 124.64, 123.74
  • Resistance: 126.10, 126.83, 127.55

The US Dollar resumed its advance against the Japanese Yen, rising to the highest level in 13 years. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 126.10 exposes the 50% level at 126.83. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fibat 125.20 opens the door for a challenge of the 14.6% expansion at 124.64.

Negative RSI divergence warns of ebbing upside momentum and hints a reversal downward may be in the cards ahead, arguing against taking a long position. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines for now and wait for a more compelling opportunity to present itself.
