Japanese Yen Price Chart – USD/JPY Weekly

Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; USD/JPY on Tradingview

Notes: In my final Japanese Yen Weekly Price Outlook we famous that the USD/JPY breakout was testing a significant inflection zone at 114.55/92 and {that a}, “topside breach / weekly close above this threshold is needed for the immediate long-bias to remain viable with such a scenario exposing the August 2015 swing lows at 116.08 backed by the 2017 high-week close at 116.90.” USD/JPY opened 2022 at 115.09 with value rallying greater than 1.1% to register a excessive at 116.35 early within the week- is an exhaustion excessive in place?

I’d be cautious preventing this rally simply but as weekly momentum holds within the overbought territory however circumstances are favorable for attainable exhaustion on the again of the latest four-week rally. Initial weekly help now rests at again on the 2018 swing excessive / 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of late-2016 decline at 114.55/92 with broader bullish invalidation raised to the November low-close at 112.76. A topside breach / shut above the median-line would maintain the concentrate on subsequent resistance targets at 116.90 and the December 2016 high-week shut at 117.90.

Bottom line: The USD/JPY rally is testing confluent resistance across the 116-handle into the beginning of the month / 12 months – in search of attainable inflection right here for steering. From a buying and selling standpoint, a superb zone to scale back long-exposure / elevate protecting stops – losses needs to be restricted to 114.55 IF value is certainly heading greater on this stretch. Stay nimble right here heading into US Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) on Friday. I’ll publish an up to date Japanese Yen Price Outlook as soon as we get additional readability on the near-term USD/JPY technical commerce ranges.
