USD/JPY: technical analysis 11.08.20Published: 11 August 2020
On the 4-hour chart, the instrument keeps a moderate positive dynamic. The price is approaching a strong resistance in the region of 106.250. This level can prevent the instrument from growing, as the possibility of the reverse of the price is high there. Meanwhile, the breakout of 106.250 can accelerate the growth towards 106.468-106.500.
If the price cannot consolidate above the level of 106.250 during the short-term period, the price can reverse and retest the support level of 105.970-105.859. The downward trend will be restored after the price is set below the level of 105.703, which is the middle line of Bollinger Bands. In this case, the sellers will aim for the 105.469-105.350 support area.
