- USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
- Morning Staroffers bullish signal near key support
- Harami warns of intraday weakness
The USD/JPYbulls may be able to breathe a sigh of relief following the pair’s respect of crucial support at 101.20. The bounce off the range-bottom has yielded a Morning Star formation, which suggests the potential for a push higher if confirmed by a successive up-day. Sellers are likely to emerge at the range-top near 102.77 with interim resistance looming at the psychologically-significant 102.00 handle.
USD/JPY: Key Reversal Pattern Emerges On Test of Range-Bottom
Scrutinizing the four hour chart; the Piercing Line formation offered an early indication of the potential for USD/JPY to recover ground. However, a Harami pattern near 101.65 warns of a short-term pullback over the session ahead. Given the context afforded by the daily, a slight correction would be preferred for new long entry opportunities.
