USD/JPY had a bullish week. Yet, we should notice that the pair has reached some heavy resistance: 100-week MA (109.66) and 200-week MA (109.84). On the D1, we can already see that the movement to the upside has stalled on Thursday as USD/JPY formed a very small inside bar candlestick that looks like a “hanging man” pattern. As a result, a return below 109.35 (61.8% Fibo of the April-August decline) will lead the price down to the 109.00/108.90 area (200-day MA).
