Forecast for USD/JPY on February 18, 2021


Yesterday, the USD/JPY pair corrected down after a significant increase on Tuesday. The price found support at the peaks of February 5 and 8.

If the observed divergence is not strong, the price will continue to rise to the target range of 106.50 / 65 in a day.


On the four-hour chart, support is clearly visible at the local peaks on February 5 and 8. The MACD indicator line is already rushing to the level of 105.66, and this reduces the likelihood of a deeper correction.


But there are no obvious conditions for growth today. The sideways trend will probably continue, after which, tomorrow, such conditions may appear.
