USD/JPY Price Analysis: Rises above 110.00, potential head-and-shoulders on 1H
- Risk reset in stocks is boding well for USD/JPY.
- The pair may be forming a head-and-shoulders pattern on the hourly chart.
USD/JPY has risen above 110.00, tracking the 0.30% rise in the S&P 500 futures.
The bulls are not out of the woods yet and a break above 110.12 is needed to invalidate lower highs setup on the hourly chart and open the doors for re-test of 110.29 (Jan. 16 high).
However, if the resistance at 110.12 holds, the pair may fall back to 109.75, forming a head-and-shoulders pattern.
An hourly close below 109.75 (neckline support) would confirm a bearish reversal and create room for a drop to 109.21 (target as per the measured move method).
Trend: Bearish below 109.75
