Forecast for USD/JPY on March 18, 2021


The Japanese yen did not react strongly to the sharp weakening of the dollar yesterday after the announcement of the Fed's optimistic economic forecasts. The yen preferred to extend the consolidation and look around. This morning, the dollar stopped falling, and stock indexes continued to rise. This situation once again favors the USD/JPY pair in continuing to grow towards the target of 110.35. A weak divergence with the Marlin oscillator, as we noted yesterday, takes on the character of a discharge of the indicator before further growth.


On the four-hour chart, the price is still below the MACD indicator line, the Marlin is formally in the growth zone, but continues to move sideways in its own range. The signal to buy will be the exit price above yesterday's top, 109.34.
