USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Trying to Clear Path Sub-120

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Trying to Clear Path Sub-120

Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 120.70, 119.48, 117.98
  • Resistance: 121.91, 123.13, 124.08

The US Dollar turned sharply lower against the Japanese Yen, declining to the lowest level in nearly two months. A daily close below the 50% Fibonacci retracementat 120.70 exposes the 61.8% level at 119.48. Alternatively, a reversal above the 38.2% Fibat 121.91opens the door for a test of falling trend line resistance at 123.13.

Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests that taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
