Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Doji suggested hesitation near key support
  • Range between 101.20 and 102.77 remains in play

USD/JPY’s long-held range between 101.20 and 102.77 remains intact following a push off support backed by a Doji formation. However, the pair may fall short of its range-top as a Harami pattern highlights the potential for a pullback.

Scrutinizing the four hour chart below a Harami pattern near support at 101.65 suggests the potential for a recovery over the session ahead. However, given the context afforded by the daily and nearby resistance at 102.10, the extent of a recovery may prove limited.
