USD/JPY Analysis

The big story so far this week has really been one of weakness in the JPY. I have had a long bias on this pair and that continues strongly. Unfortunately we seem to be a long way away from any safe entry points right now, and additionally we are approaching a likely key resistant level at 105.00, which is why I do not have a long signal this morning.

Take great care in any short trades off 105.00. There still seems to be plenty of bullishness in this pair.

The level at 105.43 is the highest the price has been since 2008.


There are no high-impact data releases scheduled today concerning the EUR. Later at 3pm, there will a release of U.S.A. ISM Manufacturing PMI data. Therefore the New York session is likely to see the most activity in this pair over the next 24 hours.
