Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Pending Long
  • Bulls Lose Steam Near 104.00 Ceiling
  • H4 Chart Offers Warning Of A Pullback

USD/JPY remains at a critical juncture near the 104.00 ceiling with an absence of key reversal patterns casting some doubt over a possible correction. A daily close above the nearby hurdle would likely set the scene for a run on the late January highs near 104.85.

A Bearish Engulfing formation on the four hour chart may offer an advance warning of a pullback if confirmed by a successive down-period. A crawl under the nearby 103.67 floor could set the scene for an extended decline toward the former range-top at 103.00.
