Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 101.81, 101.52, 101.06
  • Resistance:102.04, 102.25-28, 102.57

The US Dollar may be set to extend its move higher against the Japanese Yen after prices broke resistance at the top of a falling channel top set from early June. The bulls now aim to challenge the 50%Fibonacci expansion at 102.04, with a break above that exposing the 102.25-28 area marked by the May 13 close and the 61.8% level. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 38.2% Fib at 101.81 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% expansion at 101.52.

The available trading range is too narrow to justify a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for an actionable trade setup to emerge.
