USD/JPY In Consolidation

Technical Reports

The pair remains limited inside of consolidation from 105.24. Trading tone is neutral. Bullish convergence is present in 4 hour MACD. Choppy breach 107.67 resistance will argue short term reversal. Following pivot points include: (S1) 106.15; (P) 106.56; (R1) 106.82.

The prognosis should become bullish to 110.47 resistance. Further drop is anticipated. Breach of 105.24 will extend deeper fall from 118.65 to 100% projection of 118.65 to 108.12 from 114.73 at 104.20.

In the bigger picture, current development argues that the corrective pattern from 118.65 is extending. The solid break of 61.8% retracement of 98.97 to 118.65 at 106.48 now suggests that the pattern from 125.85 high is possibly extending. Deeper fall could be seen through 98.97 key support (2016 low). This bearish case will now be favored as long as 110.47 resistance holds.
