The USD/JPY currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:
  • Prev Open: 109.43
  • Prev Close: 109.33
  • % chg. over the last day: -0.09%

On Friday, the USD/JPY currency pair slightly declined and then consolidated in a narrow range. But the sellers managed to push the price below the support level of 109.41, which is an open road to the next level of 109.01.

  • Support levels: 109.01, 108.87, 108.44, 108.19,107.77, 107.47, 107.04
  • Resistance levels: 109.40, 109.64, 109.95, 110.51

The price is still above the moving average, but the MACD indicator has become inactive. As long as the price is above the 109.01 level, the trend remains bullish. But considering the weakness of the dollar index, the price of USD/JPY is likely to go down.

Alternative scenario: if the price drops below 109.01, the general downtrend is likely to resume.

  • Resistance levels: 1.2137, 1.2251, 1.2321, 1.2388, 1.2414, 1.2519, 1.2618

For USD/CAD, the general trend is still bearish. So the best strategy is to look for sell deals from the resistance levels. It is better to forget about purchases, at least until the price breaks through the level of 1.2137.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.2321 resistance level and holds above, a local corrective uptrend is likely to form.
