- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support:122.36, 121.54, 120.52
- Resistance:123.18, 124.20, 124.83
The US Dollar continues to trade sideways in a choppy range above the 122.00 figure against the Japanese having turned lower 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 38.2% Fibat 123.18 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% retracement at 124.20.
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.
