Daily Timeframe: Recent developments on the show price trading just below a daily seen at 120.45.This level, as far as we can see, remains a key obstacle to a move towards a daily supply area visible at 122.61-121.54, which, if you look back to the weekly chart, you’ll notice that this area encapsulates the aforementioned weekly Quasimodo .
4hr Timeframe: The 4hr timeframe shows that the USD/JPY pair rallied higher yesterday, consequently breaking above and retesting the 120.00 handle. However, as you can probably see, price is also trading directly below a 4hr supply area at 120.73-120.39, which surrounds the daily mentioned above at 120.45. It is not so much the 4hr supply area we’re looking at now, it is this daily level, since, if you remember from the analysis above, this barrier is potentially a key obstacle to price moving higher.
Our team has come to a general consensus that WAITING is the best position to have on this pair at the moment. Why is this? Well, if price closes above and retests the 120.45 daily swap level today, our team will, with lower timeframe confirmation, jump in long. In the event that price closes below and retests 120.00 as resistance however, short-term sells (with lower timeframe confirmation) down to the 4hr Quasimodo could very well be the path to take.
