USD/JPY: Daily

Looks like USD/JPY is stubbornly refusing to break out! Just when most traders thought that the pair was breaching the bottom of the descending triangle, it popped right back up and started to make its way to the top. If the triangle resistance around the 102.00 major psychological resistance holds, USD/JPY could make another move to the triangle support. Stochastic is just moving out of the oversold region though, which means that buying pressure is mounting. Think this could lead to an upside break?

The pair is currently finding support around the middle of the channel, suggesting that another rally might be in the cards pretty soon. At the same time, a bullish divergence has formed when stochastic made lower lows while price made higher lows.

Y’all didn’t think I’d miss out on this neat little break-and-retest setup, did you? On its 4-hour forex time frame, NZD/JPY is showing signs of a pullback before resuming its drop. Price looks ready to retrace to the former support at the 87.50 minor psychological level, which is in line with the 50% Fib. Stochastic hasn’t quite crossed down from the overbought zone yet, which means that buyers are still pretty strong. The 61.8% Fib and SMAs could act as lines in the sand for any rallies though.
