Since the beginning of this year, the USDJPY currency pair has been moving in an uptrend in the form of an upward channel.
- July maximum started declines on USDJPY
- inside bar after the downward breakout from the channel
- US inflation data at 14:30
At the beginning of July, the pair established the maximum at the level of 111.66, at the same time forming an engulfing formation and the price began to fall.
Last Thursday, the price broke out of the channel with a significant 115p day candle.
Currently, the price is approaching the defeated support from the bottom within the range of Thursday’s candle, forming an inside bar formation.
If we look at the H4 chart – we can see that today there was a formation of bearish engulfing (blue rectangle), also called a bearish outside bar. If the downward breakout occurs and the MACD enters a declining phase, it would be a signal for the continuation of the downward correction initiated last Thursday by the aforementioned strong breakout from the channel.
Today at 14:30 we will learn the level of inflation in the USA. These data may lead to increased volatility in gold, JPY, CHF , EUR – therefore it is worth to be cautious in making trading decisions.
