- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 123.96, 123.59, 123.00
- Resistance: 124.55, 125.03, 125.51
The US Dollar continues to push upward against the Japanese Yen, with prices advancing to set a new monthly high. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci expansionat 124.55 exposes the 50% level at 125.03. Alternatively, a turn below the 23.6% Fib at 123.96 opens the door for a test of the 14.6% expansion at 123.59.
The available trading range is too narrow to justify entering a trade in line with our long-term Euro outlook from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now, waiting for price action to offer a more compelling opportunity down the road.
