Chart of the Day - 2/19/2010 β USD/JPY
(Chart courtesy of FX Solutions' FX AccuCharts. Price on 1st pane, Slow Stochastics on 2nd pane; horizontal support/resistance levels in yellow; uptrend lines in green; downtrend lines in red; chart patterns in white; 50-period simple moving average in light blue.)
2/19/2010 β USD/JPY β Recent bullish price action on USD/JPY, a daily chart of which is shown, has risen to approach dynamic resistance around the top border of a parallel downtrend channel that has been in place since the April 2009 high. In the process, the pair has established a new 5-week high. In the event that the bullish momentum continues on to break out above the downtrend channel, which would jeopardize the current overall downtrend, a key resistance target to the upside resides around the 93.75 price region. This support/resistance level represents the year-to-date high, as well as the point at which price previously turned down on reaching the top of the downtrend channel. If the downtrend is currently respected again with a turn back down around the channelβs top border, one potential trigger to short would be a breakdown below the short-term uptrend support line extending from the recent 88.50 low. If this trendline breakdown occurs, a key initial support target to the downside resides in the 88.50 price region.
