USD / JPY Technical Analysis Oct 24

What’s next on the USDJPY pair at the 103.32 level?

The USDJPY pair has been, since the 14th of October 2016, oscillating within a downside formation between the range of 104.46 and 103.32 respectively.

Will the bears take control over the price or do the buyers have something else in mind?

Today’s major pivot point area is the 103.32 level where the sellers will likely take their chances to shift the price to their favour.

Probable Scenario

The latest stabilization of the pair above the 103.32 level is a good indication that the sellers may exert greater pressures to force the price to the downside.

The Stochastic oscillator has also confirmed that the price could aggressively drop at the 60 zone.

In the scenario where the pair decelerates, the price could fall to 102.61 Fibonacci’s 161.8%.
