USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Range Breakout Threatened

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Range Breakout Threatened

Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:122.36, 121.54, 120.52
  • Resistance:123.18, 124.20, 124.83

The US Dollar gapped lower at the open of the trading week but prices subsequently recovered to finish back within their recent range against the Japanese Yen. 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.

Positioning is inconclusive at this point, with prices offering no clear-cut and actionable signal to initiate a long or short trade. We will continue to remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a compelling opportunity to present itself.
