Forecast for USD/JPY on June 16, 2020


Yesterday's optimism in the stock markets in connection with the Federal Reserve's announcement of a new program for the redemption of corporate bonds, to a lesser extent affected the Japanese yen. The daily candle remained black, although it still closed above the price channel line on the daily chart. The price may continue corrective growth to the level of 107.95, but the Marlin oscillator is kept in the negative trend zone, so growth may not occur, and yesterday's exit over the linear resistance could turn out to be false.


The MACD line corresponds to the target level 107.95 on the four-hour chart. Marlin is in the growth zone here and the general situation on the H4 is conducive to continued growth. However, possible growth remains corrective, since the price is still below the indicator lines of balance and MACD - these lines have a technical advantage over the Marlin oscillator.


The Japanese Nikkei 225 index is growing by 3.05% today in the Asian session, which the yen does not respond to at all. This nevertheless indicates the strength of the Japanese currency and is an additional factor in pulling down the USD/JPY pair. To consolidate the downward trend, the price must go below yesterday's low of 107.01, which will automatically mean that the price would fall under the MACD line on a daily scope. Target at 105.90 will open. We are waiting for the development of the situation.
