USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Bulls Return in Force

Ilya Spivak

USD/JPY Technical Analysis- Prices advanced as expected after putting in a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. The bulls are now testing through a key resistance cluster in the 96.58-82 area, marked by the March 12 high, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, and the underside of a recently broken rising trend line set from late February. A break above that exposes the 38.2% level at 98.70. The first layer of major support is at 93.78, the June 13 low.
