USD/JPY Technical Analysis ? Yen Probes Below 102.00 Again

February 13, 2014

Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 101.59 (23.6% Fib exp.), 100.90 (38.2% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 102.96 (Feb 11 high)

    The Japanese Yen is launching a swift recovery against the US Dollar after putting in a Hanging Man candlestick, with USD/JPY on pace to issue largest drop in eight days. A break below support at 101.59, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, targets the 38.2% level at 100.90. Near-term resistance is at 102.69, the February 11 high.

    A short position at current levels looks unattractive from a risk/reward perspective as prices trade squarely at relevant support. On the other hand, a long trade seems premature absent confirmation of reversal. On balance, we will remain on the sidelines for now.
