- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
- Breakout Leaves Void Of Bearish Patterns
- H4 Chart Offered Intraday Correction Warning
USD/JPY has finally cleared the critical 104.00 barrier with a void of bearish signals suggesting the potential for further gains. This leaves the spotlight on the Mid-January highs near 104.85. A daily close below 104.00 would signal a false breakout and warn of a more sustained correction for the pair.

A Harami formation on the four hour timeframe offered an early indication of the potential for a slight pullback. However, with strong buying support likely sitting around the 104.00 handle the extent of further declines may be limited.
