USD/JPY: a SELL opportunity

USD/JPY: a SELL opportunity

2021-02-17 • Updated

USD/JPY rose to the resistance of the 50-week MA at 106.00. The pair is not at the resistance line since the end of December. This is the third time the price comes to this level. As a result, a correction to the downside is likely. The decline below support at 105.85 will open the way down to 105.60 (200-day MA). The further fall will make the pair vulnerable for a fall to the lower border of the short-term uptrend at 105.00.

The market awaits the release of the US retail sales and the FOMC meeting minutes. IF the former is worse than expected, USD/JPY will get hurt.
