  • % chg. over the last day: -0.03%

Yesterday, the USD/JPY pair traded in the range of 107.85 – 108.20, showing a change of -0.03%. On the H1 and H4 timeframes, the price is below the moving average, which tells us about the continuation of the downward movement. It is worth selling the instrument.

  • Resistance levels: 108.60, 109.08, 109.75

While the pair is in a downtrend, we recommend sticking to bearish trading. The main scenario is looking for a sell entry point after price correction to the 108.60 level or after breaking through 107.87. It is also worth paying attention to the MACD divergence, which may signal a trend reversal.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out and consolidates above the level of 108.63, it is worth buying to the level of 109.08.
