Technical analysis of USD/JPY for February 28, 2018

USDJPYM30.png

USD/JPY is under pressure. Under pressure. The pair has struck against its nearest key resistance at 107.60, and also remains under pressure below its declining 20-period and 50-period moving averages. The relative strength index is below its neutrality area at 50, and calls for a new drop. Last but not least, the process of lower highs and lows remains intact, which should confirm a bearish outlook, and call for a further decline to 106.75 and 106.35 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction, a long position is recommended to be above 107.60 with a target of 107.90.

Chart Explanation: The black line shows the pivot point. The current price above the pivot point indicates a bullish position, while the price below the pivot point is a signal for a short position.
