USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Short-Term Look At Recent Pull-Back

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Short-Term Look At Recent Pull-Back

Talking Points:

A short-term outlook on USD/JPY should show that the Bulls are not out of the woods yet. US Yields pushed higher after Non-Farm Payroll on Friday, which helped USD/JPY push higher on USD extending gains. However, despite the rise in yields where the 2yr pushed above 1.20%, there could still be downside risk in USD/JPY from a technical perspective.

The key level to watch at the close of trading in the first week of 2017 remains the 61.8% of the range for this week that stretches from 118.60 down to 115.07 at 117.259. If price remains below this zone, we could be seeing a deep retracement of the first key move lower that could extend lower. Should this level hold and a downside move resume, we should keep an eye on the price continuing to move lower with the highlighted range on the chart to the lower levels we focused on earlier this week near 114.85/50 and the lower target near 112.

Only if price breaks above this zone could we comfortably see the downward move behind us and looking to resume was it presumed to be a strong bullish move in Q1 2017 for USD/JPY. A Bull Flag breakout would take place on a move above the 78.6% retracement of the zone at 117.854.
