Ilya Spivak

USD/JPY Technical Analysis- 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. Further still, the early outlines of Head and Shoulders top are starting to reveal themselves. Confirmation requires a close below 91.92 the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, which would initially expose the 23.6% level at 90.36. Near-term resistance is at 94.45, the February 11 high.
