FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/JPY is trading at 102.13, up 0.30% on the day, having posted a daily high at 102.26 and low at 101.81.
USD/JPY has struggled through 102 and is mostly offered towards the closing bell in New York. Val Bednarik, Chief analyst at FXstreet explained that the USD/JPY advanced some above 102.00 on stocks gains, but remained capped below its 200 SMA in the hourly chart, unable to advance any further since US opening. “The same time frame shows momentum heading north in positive territory, but CCI diverging lower, anticipating a probable price retracement. 100 SMA stands around 101.90 offering short term support, while the 4 hours chart an overall positive tone, with indicators in positive territory yet lacking strength. As commented earlier, some follow through pass 102.35 is required to confirm a stronger advance, looking for a test of the 102.80 price zone”.
