Talking Points:

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 124.10, 123.28, 122.73
  • Resistance: 124.78, 125.20, 125.88

The US Dollar produced a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern, suggesting a turn downward against Japanese Yen may be ahead. Near-term support is in the 124.17-10 area (resistance-turned-support, August 10 low), with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 123.28. Alternatively, a turn above the 14.6% Fib expansion at 124.78 clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% threshold at 125.20.

Positioning is inconclusive at this point. On one hand, follow-through on the bearish candle setup has yet to see confirmed follow-through. On the other, the pattern’s presence warns against trying for the long side in line with the dominant long-term trade. We will stay flat for now until greater clarity emerges.
