USD/JPY Technical Analysis – Prices continue to consolidate within the confines of a large Triangle chart pattern. The pattern is usually indicative of consolidation preceding continuation of the broader trend, which carries implications in this case. Confirmation requires a daily close above the formation’s top, a barrier reinforced by the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 98.76. Trend line support is at 96.90, with a reversal below that eyeing the Triangle bottom at 96.61.
