Technical analysis of USD/JPY for August 18, 2017


USD/JPY is under pressure and expected to trade with bearish outlook. The pair remains in consolidation, and the nearest resistance at 109.25 maintains the strong selling pressure on the prices. Furthermore, the relative strength index is mixed to bearish below its neutrality area at 50.

To sum up, as long as 109.14 holds on the upside, look for a return to 108.30. A break below 108.30 would trigger a new drop towards 108.10.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction, a long position is recommended above 109.25 with a target at 109.65.
