The MACD was unable to return to the positive zone, all technical indicators demonstrate the dominance of bears.

The USD/JPY currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:
  • Prev Open: 104.17
  • Prev Close: 104.05
  • % chg. over the last day: -0.12%

On Monday, the pair failed to hold on to its regained positions, and the price closed just below its opening. Market concerns took a piece of the action, and defensive assets were in demand. However, this didn’t affect USD/JPY that much. Price changes are minimal. Stochastic moves quickly from oversold to overbought levels and back. The MACD is neutral. Everything points to continuing trading in a narrow range.

Trading recommendations
  • Support levels: 103.83, 103.68
  • Resistance levels: 104.74

The main trading scenario for the pair – trading in a sideways range. Due to the rapid change in the market sentiment to negative, a decrease to the support level 103.68 in the first place and another rebound to the current levels is possible.

An alternative scenario assumes consolidation above the level of 104.20 and the resumption of growth to 104.74.

On Monday, the asset showed low volatility. The pair failed to fix above the moving averages. The MACD remains in the negative zone. Stochastic is neutral. The bullish sentiment is still weak and you should probably be careful with purchases, although the pair seems to be significantly oversold.

The main scenario: we recommend considering buying an asset as part of the correction after it fixes above the average SMA 50 and SMA 100 on the H1 timeframe, or from the support level 1.2770 with a short stop-loss.

Alternative scenario: if the price can break through the support of 1.2770, it’s likely to continue falling to 1.2527.
