USDJPY Daily – Bears dominating the market

Written on 22/06/2020 by Theunis Kruger, FX Trainer at FXTM

The USDJPY currency pair, on the D1 time frame, was in an uptrend until the 5th of June when a higher top was reached at 109.848. Supply overwhelmed demand and the market started declining.

After the higher top at 109.848, the price broke through the 15 and 34 Simple Moving Averages and the Momentum Oscillator crossed the zero baseline into negative terrain.

The downward momentum was confirmed with strong bearish candles that occurred during the break of the Moving Averages.

A possible critical support level formed when a bottom was recorded on the 11th of June at 106.569. Buyers tried to drive the price higher but could not maintain the upward momentum and a lower top formed on June the 16th at 107.637.

If the USDJPY breaks through the critical support level at 106.569, then three possible price targets may be calculated from there.

Applying the Fibonacci tool to the bottom of the support level at 106.569 and dragging it to the top of the resistance level at 107.637, the following targets might be considered.

The first target could be projected at 105.909 (161 %). The second price target might be considered at 104.841 (261.8%), and the third and final target may be expected at 103.113 (423.6%).

If the 107.637 resistance level is broken, the possible scenarios above are invalidated and need to be re-evaluated.

As long as sellers maintain a negative sentiment and supply overcomes demand, the outlook for the USDJPY currency pair on the Daily time-frame will remain bearish.
