USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Early Friday dip into 112.80 on Yen buying

  • The Dollar-Yen pairing took a quick dip into 112.82 in thin Asian markets as the JPY sees a quick round of bidding up, though with Japanese markets shuttered for the national holiday, the buying pressure on the Yen is unlikely to evolve into a meaningful trend change.
  • The down move in the USD/JPY is already getting worked back, with the pair getting bounced back from the quick sell-off.

USD/JPY Chart, 5-Minute

  • The USD/JPY has seen downside play over the past two weeks, and the 113.00 technical level is the current near-term ceiling on action.

USD/JPY Chart, 30-Minute

  • The past four months see the USD/JPY beginning to wrap itself around the 200-period moving average, and this week's lower high into 113.20 increases the odds of a new shortside pattern beginning to develop.
