USD/JPY Analysis

This pair is in an interesting situation and should be attractive to traders. The price has again reached and rejected the bearish trend line shown in the chart below. This line is the upper boundary of a long-term and very wide bearish price channel, and therefore logically there is a good possibility that the price has much further to fall. Strengthening the bearish case, we also have a retest and rejection of a broken short-term bullish trend line. The difficulty for bears is that not only has the U.S. Dollar been strengthened by yesterday’s rate hike by the Federal Reserve, it is also being bought strongly every time there is a significant fall, which makes trading the pair short a painful process over the long-term, so something very stressful over the short-term.
