Japanese Yen: USD/JPY (JPY=X) Continues To Grind
The US dollar has rallied a bit during the trading session on Monday, digging into the shooting star from the Friday session. That is a very strong sign as we continue to fight the sellers. Having said that though, there is still a lot to do in order to continue going higher. Breaking above the ¥110 level would open up the floodgates to a move to the ¥111 level, the scene of a serious gap. That obviously will have people looking for resistance, but if we can break above there then it’s likely that the market goes all the way to the 100% Fibonacci retracement level, near the ¥112.50 level.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
The projected upper bound is: 110.50.
The projected lower bound is: 108.75.
The projected closing price is: 109.63.
A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 5 white candles and 5 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 26 white candles and 23 black candles for a net of 3 white candles.
Three white candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three white soldiers, the steady upward pattern is bullish.
Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 82.9610. This is an overbought reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses below 80 The last signal was a buy 4 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 62.04. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 89 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 96. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 10 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 1 period(s) ago.
