Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Failure To Breach 103.00 Casts Doubt On Gains
  • Awaiting Bearish Patterns To Signal A Reversal

USD/JPY has continued its ascent following a Harami pattern on the daily with the pair testing key resistance near 103.00 in recent trading. The failure to breach the psychologically-significant barrier casts some doubt on further gains. However, an absence of bearish patterns also makes a reversal questionable. This leaves the sidelines preferred until a more constructive setup presents itself.

The four hour chart reveals a similar narrative as the daily. A Harami pattern has failed to find follow-through which has left a void of reversal patterns. Several Doji formations indicate noteworthy indecision amongst traders near the 103.00 handle.
