USD/JPY: ranges getting narrower, time for a break out?

FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/JPY is currently trading at 119.79 with a high of 120.09 and a low of 119.54.

USD/JPY struggles at the 120 handle and a downside bias is perhaps materializing. A break out os due if the symmetrical triangle on the daily chart is anything to go by, with the recent ranges becoming more and more narrow. There is a lack of impetus in the market for USD/JPY traders with risk sentiment on and off week to week, day to day.

The BoJ are due to meet at the end of the month yet again while the FOMC is due as well. The forthcoming data from the US is key, with industrial production, retails sales, CPI's and the beige book.

USD/JPY key range

The range to monitor for a break out stays with 118.60 and JPY121.60 with the four-month level at 125.40 and the August 24, lows of 116.20.
