- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Hammer Awaits Confirmation To Suggest Recovery
- Focus Remains On Range-Bottom Near 101.00/20
USD/JPY’s recent Hammer formation on the daily may fail to yield a recovery for the pair with heavy congestion overhead. A jump over the 102.20 hurdle would be required to cast the immediate risk the upside, which would open the 102.77/103.00 range-top. However, at this stage the focus remains on the 101.00/20 floor.

The four hour chart offered an early warning indication for USD/JPY’s intraday reversal. The Dragonfly Doji formation near 101.75 suggested a bounce to the psychologically-significant 102.00 handle. With a Harami pattern now in its wake there may be the potential for intraday weakness for the pair.
