USD/JPY may experience a correction
SELL 109.30; TP 109.00; SL 109.45
USD/JPY had a bullish week. Yet, we should notice that the pair has reached some heavy resistance: 100-week MA (109.66) and 200-week MA (109.84). On the D1, we can already see that the movement to the upside has stalled on Thursday as USD/JPY formed a very small inside bar candlestick that looks like a “hanging man” pattern. As a result, a return below 109.35 (61.8% Fibo of the April-August decline) will lead the price down to the 109.00/108.90 area (200-day MA).
Although we preferred to focus on a bearish scenario in this article, unexpectedly positive news about the US-China, if such materializes, may push the exchange rate to the weekly moving averages and psychological resistance at 110.00.
