USD/JPY sees its volatility dampen

USD/JPY is climbing the charts consistently while exhibiting a very low volatility.

USD/JPY currently trading well above the 50-EMA, radiates its bullish condition. But at the same time, as outlined from an hourly perspective, it has shrunk its intraday volatility to a minimum not seen for over a week of trading.

There is potential for extra pips to be offered to traders in the basket of the bull, but attention should be paid to the parabolic SAR indicator: the SAR has been trailing the ascent move for more than 16 consecutive hours and could reverse direction at any moment, offering a signal to liquidate longs.

This technical condition is usually associated with the formation of gently upward sloping channels.
