USD/JPY Near Combined Support Levels

June 16, 2013 12:17 am GMT+0  in Chart Alert


USD/JPY weakened further and touched 93.79 during last week. The strong falls bring the bearish outlook but such a consolidation is quite natural after a long uptrend when the pair broke above the strong psychological level of 100.00 and had gone as high as 103.73. Considering this the consolidation has not even completed 38.2% retracement of the upward gains.

Not only this but the currency pair has been above 200-day moving average support since the last week of October 2012. The current 200-day moving average is at 93.46 i.e. just 10 pips below the above mentioned 38.2% support.
