AUDJPY: Daily

PoD Chart

Candlestick analysis time! After rallying strongly last week, it looks like the AUDJPY is now running out of steam. A gravestone doji has formed right on the 50% Fibonacci retracement level, indicating that there is some resistance at the psychologically significant 80.00 handle. With the next candle a very bearish one and stochastics at overbought territory, we could see a move towards minor support at 78.00. Now, if the bulls manage to gather some strength and push price above the 50% Fib, expect the 61.8% Fib to be tested.

GBPJPY: 4-hour

PoD Chart

Check out the ascending triangle formation on the GBPJPY 4-hour chart! The pair has been drawing higher lows but was unable to bust above the resistance near 136.00. The pair is sitting at the bottom of the triangle and, with the stochastics climbing out of the oversold area, the pair could also head higher. If the upward momentum is strong enough, the pair could even surge above the top of the triangle. However, if the sellers regain control, they could force a breakdown and probably push the pair down until support around 131.00.

USDJPY: 1-hour

PoD Chart

Hmm, it looks like the USDJPY bears have finally exhausted themselves as price was unable to make a new “lower low.” Stochastics is currently pointing up and with price edging higher slowly, we could see a retest of the falling trend line resistance at 91.00. Conversely, if price heads down instead, expect to see some tough buying support between 90.25-90.35.

    I like to follow your charts. Just Prices. Prices are the best indicators ever.
    Great Job always.

    Props from me as well, though one question.

    What values do you use for your stochastic?

    interesting yen analysis. have you noticed the contracting triangle formed on the 1d chart? it also suggests a break above 91.

    @lasereyes Yes, I see what you mean. The lower highs on the lower time frames, specifically on the 4-hour chart is suspect though. Might go either way.

    @Toryd The settings on my stochs is slow with parameters 14, 3, 3.
