The price action has been narrowed down from a Channel Up to a Rising Wedge on 1D (RSI = 63.891, MACD = 0.106, Highs/Lows = 0.0795). Technically every pull back up to 8.000 is a buy towards the 8.550 Resistance (ext. 8.876).

The ZAR/JPY currency pair breached a long-term descending channel north at the beginning of November. The South African Rand has been depreciating against the Japanese Yen since the end of August. This movement has been bounded in a rising wedge.
Currently the exchange rate is testing the resistance level formed by the Fibonacci 50.00% retracement at 8.23....
I see a bearish rising wedge and divergences on histogram for Zar/Jpy.
You can sell Zar/Jpy now or you can wait for an inclined support of rising wedge to be broken.
**If the support of wedge is broken, our ultimate profit target will be 7,1.
Brief analysis on possible upside down pennant forming. Price seems to be rebounding off a solid floor with lower high candle wicks. This is not part of my trading strategy, but chart analysis that I like going through. Nothing too complex.
This pair has been trading on a very long term bearish pattern on the 1M chart (RSI = 44.631, MACD = -0.196, Highs/Lows = -0.1826, B/BP = -0.8800) and the neutrality on the 1W chart (5 indicators) suggests that a High has been reached. The bands appear to be widening for the supports, so we are short with TP = 6.700.
