USD/JPY Pullback Sought for Buying Opportunity

Ilya Spivak

USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Pending Long


Prices put in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern, hinting a move lower is ahead. Negative RSI divergence bolsters the case for a downside scenario. Initial support is at 91.92, marked by the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that exposing the 23.6% level at 90.36. Near-term resistance is at 94.45, the February 11 high. We will look to a move lower as a buying opportunity in the weeks ahead.
