    USD/JPY Forex Technical Analysis – Testing Retracement Zone; Strengthens Over 104.499, Weakens Under 104.135

    Abstract:Based on the early price action, the direction of the USD/JPY on Monday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the 50% level at 104.135.

      The Dollar/Yen is extending last week‘s gains early Monday as a surge in U.S. yields and hopes for more stimulus to boost the world’s largest economy prompted some investors to temper bearish bets, pulling the Forex pair further away from a multi-month low reached on January 6. The Dollar/Yen hit a one-month high of 104.22 Yen Monday as better rates gave pause to some dollar shorts.

      At 05:13 GMT, the USD/JPY is trading 104.215, up 0.248 or +0.24%.

      President-elect Joe Biden, who takes office on January 20 with Democrats able to control both houses of Congress, has promised “trillions” in extra pandemic-relief spending. That has pushed the yield on benchmark 10-year U.S. debt up more than 20 basis points to 1.1187% this year, according to Reuters.

      Based on the early price action, the direction of the USD/JPY on Monday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the 50% level at 104.135.

      Bullish Scenario

      A sustained move over 104.135 will indicate the presence of buyers. This could trigger a rally into 104.499, followed by the minor top at 104.579, the pair of main tops at 104.751 and 104.761 and the main retracement zone at 104.821 to 105.347.

      Bearish Scenario

      A sustained move under 104.135 will signal the presence of sellers. If this generates enough downside momentum then look for the selling to possibly extend into 103.407.
