USDJPY recovers within two-month-old rising wedge

USDJPY recovers within two-month-old rising wedge

USDJPY snaps a two-day losing streak early Friday while challenging the previous day’s rising wedge bearish chart pattern’s confirmation. In doing so, the Yen pair justifies an upbeat RSI (14) line, as well as an impending bull cross on the MACD. It’s worth noting, however, that a clear upside break of 150.50 support-turned-resistance becomes necessary to defy the downside signals. Following that, an ascending trend line from January 31, also forming part of a short-term rising wedge near 151.70, will lure the bulls. It’s worth noting that the upper line of a broader rising wedge, close to 152.40 at the latest, appears the last defense of the pair sellers before directing the quote toward the June 1990 swing high of around 155.80.

Meanwhile, the USDJPY pair’s failure to cross the 150.50 immediate upside hurdle will drag it back below the 150.00 threshold. In that case, a convergence of the 100-SMA and the aforementioned wedge’s bottom line surrounding 148.40 will be a crucial level to watch for the pair sellers as a clear break of that will open doors for a theoretical fall toward 137.90. During the fall, the 200-SMA level of 147.00, monthly low of near 145.90 and December’s trough surrounding 140.25 will act as intermediate halts.

Overall, USDJPY remains on the bear’s radar despite the latest recovery move.
