Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 102.51, 102.28, 101.98
  • Resistance: 102.75, 103.05, 103.53

The US Dollar is trying to renew upward momentum against the Japanese Yen as prices fight to rise toward the 103.00 figure. Near-term resistance is at 102.75, the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 76.4% level at 103.05. Alternatively, a reversal below the 50% Fib at 102.51 clears the way for a test of 102.28, the intersection of the 38.2% expansion and a rising trend line set from mid-July.

Prices are wedged too closely between near-term support and resistance to justify taking a trade from a risk/reward perspective. We will stand aside for the time being, waiting for a more attractive setup to present itself.
