USD/JPY: Ichimoku analysis

Daily. There is an untypical situation on the dollar/yen market. Last week we expected the price to continue growth (fix above Tenkan-sen was a buying signal, actually). However, yen edged higher, taking the pair into the 97.80 area (bottom of the daily Cloud). The market doesn’t look so optimistic anymore: on Wednesday the bears are testing the levels below the Kijun support (98.70). Fix below this line will negate the bullish prospects for an uncertain period of time.

H4. It is not so easy for the bears to resume the uptrend – the upper boundary of the H4 bearish cloud is a strong resistance for now. On the other hand, the lower boundary is acting as a support. We concede that a fix around 98.50/60 can trigger a sharp appreciation of the pair. Fix below this area could open the way to 97.50.
