USD/JPY (a 4-hour chart)

General overview

After the Fed statistics publication the Japanese yen has strengthened less against the dollar among the majors. In the short term we may expect the quotations decrease as the US Federal Reserve chairman J. Yellen pointed out that they have to see "more convincing evidence" of sustained moderate economic growth to start the interest rates raising.

The price is finding the first support at 122.40, the next one is at 121.60. The price is finding the first resistance at 123.50, the next one is at 124.30.

There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is correcting.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixates below the resistance level of 123.50, it may continue the downward trend in the short term. The potential targets are 122.40, 121.60 and 120.40.
