Technical analysis of USD/JPY for September 04, 2017


USD/JPY is expected to trade with a bearish outlook. The pair posted a gap down open and broke below its lower boundary of Bollinger Bands, which indicated an acceleration of the bearish trend. The 20-period moving average is turning down. The relative strength index is heading downward.

Hence, as long as 110.25 is not surpassed, look for a further decline to 109.50 and even to 109.00 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction, a long position is recommended above 110.25 with a target at 109.50.
