The yen which is the most liquid currency in the whole of Asia’s economy is also a form of proxy for the entire Asian economic growth. When instability is observed in the Asian sector, traders generally respond by selling or buying the yen as a replacement to other Asian nation’s currencies that are not as easy to trade. It is also worth mentioning that the Japanese economy registered a record period of low economic growth and relative low interest rates. When trading USD/JPY, a leading indicator of its future price direction is the Japanese economy which we must pay attention to.

Many forex circles recognize the Yen’s influential role in the carry trade. Due to Japan’s very low interest rate policy that has held for most of the 1990s to 2000s, traders borrowed the Japanese currency at a small cost and then used it to invest in other better yielding currencies. This generates benefits from the rate differentials.

Thus in the global context, the constant borrowing of the Yen proved appreciation to be a challenging task. Even so, the Yen trades with the same basic fundamentals as any other currency.

One of the dully noted major influences in the Japanese currency value is the US Dollar. This unpredictable behaviour is the reason why forex traders use technical analysis to understand the dynamic of this pair, on a long term perspective. Regular trading ranges may vary from 30 or 40 pips to as high as 150 pips.

Upwards scenario: Measures of resistance might be activating when the pair approaches 120.98 (R1). Break here would suggest next interim target at 121.18 (R2) and If the pair keeps its momentum we would expect an exposure of 121.38 (R3). Downwards scenario: Our outlook is negative on USDJPY now. Depreciation below the support level at 120.58 (S1) would enable lower targets at 120.36 (S2) and 120.17 (S3) in near term perspective.

Resistance Levels: 120.98, 121.18, 121.38

Support Levels: 120.58, 120.36, 120.17
