- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 122.36, 121.54, 120.52
- Resistance: 123.46, 124.09, 125.11
The US Dollar found interim support above the 122.00 figure after declining against the Japanese Yen as expected. A daily close below the 50% Fibonacci retracementat 122.36 exposes the 61.8% level at 121.54. Alternatively, a reversal above the 14.6% Fibexpansion at 123.46 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% threshold at 124.09.
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.
