USD/JPY Price Analysis: Technical Perspective

The USD/JPY pair remains biased to the downside, as the pair has held below the 20-day EMA at 130.60. Friday’s price action remains contained within the bounds of Thursday’s high and low, opening the door for a bullish harami candlestick formation, also known as an inside day in common bar chart lingo. Therefore, USD/JPY could rise before resuming its downtrend.

Therefore, the next resistance for USD/JPY would be 130.00, followed by the confluence of the 20 day EMA and a downtrend line around 130.60, which, once broken, could send USD/JPY higher towards the high of January 24 at 131.11. Breaking above will expose the January 18 high at 131.57.

As an alternative scenario, USD/JPY could fall towards 129.49, January 27 low. Once broken, the next support would be the weekly low of 129.02, followed by the low of 127.21.
