USD/JPY: Bearish Engulfing Pattern is Short-Term Negative
USD/JPY completed a bearish engulfing pattern yesterday, favouring a short-term bearish bias. The hourly support at 94.72 (19/03/2013 low) has been broken. A test of the support at 93.57 (see also the rising trendline) is likely. Another support is at 92.92 (05/03/2013 low). Hourly resistances can be found at 95.13 (intraday high) and 96.13 (20/03/2013 high).
The recent decline has stopped our long strategy.
USD/JPY has validated a long-term bullish trend reversal formation by breaking the strong resistance at 85.53 (06/04/2011 high). The first long-term objective, given by the key resistance at 94.99 (04/05/2010 high), has been reached. A move towards the next key resistance at 101.45 (06/04/2009 high) is expected.
