USD/JPY Eyes Range-Top With Hammer Formation In Its Wake

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Hammer Candlestick Formation Offers Bullish Signal
  • Daily Close Above The 102.20 Hurdle to Open 103.00

USD/JPY is probing above the 102.20 hurdle following the emergence of a Hammer formation on the daily. A daily close above the noteworthy resistance level in the wake of the bullish reversal signal would suggest the potential for a run towards the range-top at 102.80/103.00.
