USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
Support: 114.21 112.08 110.76
Resistance: 115.53 116.34 117.66
The US Dollar continues to race higher against the Japanese Yen having turned upward as expected after putting in a Morning Star candle pattern. A daily close above the 114.6% Fibonacci expansionat 115.53 exposes the 123.6% level at 116.34. Alternatively a turn back below the 100% Fib at 114.21 clears the way for a challenge of the 76.4% expansion at 112.08.
Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
