USD/JPY Analysis

I expected yesterday that we would get some kind of pullback, but not far enough to give a really good long entry opportunity, and that is exactly what has happened so far.

The USD did weaken somewhat.

Although so far we seem to be heading upwards this morning, it is likely that now nothing much will happen until we begin the series of high-impact USD-related news releases after New York opens.

There is a 6 year high above us at 105.43, and support below us above 104.00, but there are few other key levels to work with here.

Our bias should remain long. If the news is good for the USD and we clear 105.43, there will be no telling how high it might go.


There are very high-impact data releases scheduled today concerning the USD. There will be the ADP Non-Farm Employment Change at 1:15pm, followed by Trade Balance and Unemployment Claims at 1:30pm, and then finally ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI at 3pm. It should be a volatile day, especially if there are any surprises.
