Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Pending Short
  • Dojis Demonstrate Indecision From Traders
  • Failure To Breach 103.00 Casts Doubt On Gains

USD/JPY may continue its consolidation with several successive Doji formations denoting indecision from traders. The pair remains in a congestion zone with sellers sitting nearby at 102.77/103.00 and support resting at the 102.20 floor. A break of either region would be required to offer a clearer directional bias.

The four hour chart offered an early warning sign of USD/JPY’s intraday reversal. The Shooting Star formation near 102.75 suggested a retracement to nearby support at 102.40. However, with bullish signals seemingly absent, a recovery over the session ahead is questionable.
