Markets Analysis

Fundamental Analysis

USDJPY Technical Analysis

➡ Last night’s movement and overview of the dollar and key technicals are described.

Day Trade Strategy (Hourly)

The day-trade policy is range trading. A series of unexpected gains in Australia and Canada on consecutive days made investors aware that the rate hike cycle is continuing. The dollar surged from JPY 139 to the JPY 140 level, pausing at the upper line of the triangle.

The focus now turns to how long the triangle will hold. After all, a full-fledged rally is unlikely until the FOMC meeting. If so, we can expect the price to pull back to the moving average again. If the price breaks above the triangle, a rise to JPY 140.49 is expected.


The upper line of the triangle can be seen reacting twice and the lower line once; with the 61.8% Fibonacci line at the lower end, it will be interesting to see whether the triangle or Fibonacci will function more strongly.

Support and Resistance Lines

The resistance line to be considered in the future is as follows

JPY 140.49 – Major resistance level
JPY 139.97 – Fibonacci level
