- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Intraday Pullback Warns of A ‘False Breakout’
- Dojis Highlight Indecision Amongst Traders
USD/JPY continues to keep traders in suspense as it probes below 104.00 in intraday trade – warning of ‘false breakout’. A close of the current candle would be required to signal the bulls had lost their grip on the pair. However, the potential for a sustained correction may be limited given bearish reversal candlestick formations are lacking. Buyer’s interest would likely be renewed on a retest of the psychologically-significant 103.00 floor.
USD/JPY: Awaiting Close of Candle to Confirm ‘False Breakout’
A narrow trading band and a pair of Dojis on the four hour chart is indicative of indecision amongst traders. This suggests awaiting a more constructive set of signals before entering new positions may be prudent.
