USD/JPY strategic bias

According to Ivan Delgado, Head of Asian Editors at, “The USD/JPY has broken through 98.80 critical juncture, confirming early clues that there is a structural change taking place, with the sequence of LL and LH initiated off July highs no longer valid. The upside resolution, which follows a squeeze higher coupled with multiple test of breakout line, indicates a legitimate breakout is underway, expecting follow through for next target at 99.10 and beyond, subject to behavior in Nikkei 225 under current session and UST later today. On the downside, expect dips to be seen as buying opportunities as long as 98.30 - recent swing low H1 - not lost.”
