USD/JPY Chart Warns of Correction Ahead

Ilya Spivak

USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat

Prices declined as expected after putting in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Sellers are testing below initial support at 101.84, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, to challenge the 23.6% level at 100.68. A break below that aims for the 38.2% level at 98.80. Near-term resistance is at 103.73, the May 22 high. We will look for a correction lower to yield a long trade opportunity.
