Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 123.78, 123.29, 122.49
  • Resistance: 124.57, 125.85, 126.65

The US Dollar paused to consolidate gains after hitting the highest level in nearly two months against the Japanese Yen. Near-term resistance is at 124.57, the July 30 high, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing June 5 top at 125.85. Alternatively, a move below the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 123.78 clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% level at 123.29.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to present itself.
