Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
  • Intraday Pullback Warns of A ‘False Breakout’
  • H4 Chart Offered Early Indication of A Correction

USD/JPY may have witnessed a ‘false breakout’ if the current candle closes below the 104.00 barrier. However, the potential for a sustained correction may be limited given bearish reversal candlestick formations are lacking. Buyers interest would likely be renewed on a re-test of the psychologically-significant 103.00 floor.
