Forex Strategy: USD/JPY Dojis Denote Deliberation Amongst Bulls

| 21 mars, 2014 | 0 kommentarer

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Longs preferred on breakout
  • Dojis on both the daily and four hourly charts suggest indecision
  • Clearance of resistance at 102.70 may open advance to 103.50

USD/JPYhas jumped towards the 102.70 level of resistance following the formation of a Piercing Line formation on the daily (see below). However, a pair of Doji candles denotes some deliberation amongst the bulls and suggests new longs are better served on a clearance of 102.70 which would likely open up the 103.50 mark.

Drilling down to the four hour chart; there is evidence of a drawn-out struggle between the bulls and bears around the critical 102.50 intraday resistance level. While the Doji candlesticks signal indecision, a bearish reversal pattern would be required to support a bearish technical bias for USD/JPY.
