USD/JPY Technical Analysis August 17, 2011

The USD/JPY pair continues to sit in a stagnant fashion as the psychological game between the trading world and the Bank of Japan continues. The threat of intervention by the BoJ continues to keep this pair from falling much farther than the 76 handle, but few are willing to buy the Dollar against the Yen either. Because of this, the pair looks “stuck” to us as the traders have simply left this market. Because of this, we are waiting for a large candle in order to pick a direction. Until then, there are going to be better pairs to trade.
