USD/JPY Analysis

It seems that the area at around 101.75 is acting as resistance now. It can be seen from the chart that this level is producing flipping resistance and support. However I am reluctant to use this level for any major trade as it looks somewhat weak.

The pair has turned bullish as it seems to have made an inflection at around 101.75 and it has been heading down quite steadiy ever since. Things may now consolidate before the New York session as there is no news due that should directly move this pair until then.

USDJPY 71714

There are no high-impact data releases due today concerning the JPY, although there are concerning the USD which might well have some impact upon this pair. At 1:30pm London time London time there will be a release of US Building Permits and Unemployment Claims data followed later by the Philly Fed Manufacturing Index at 3pm. Trading in this pair is likely to be quiet before the New York session begins.
