USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Talk of US-China trade deal triggers falling wedge breakout

  • Bloomberg is reporting that President Trump has asked the cabinet to draft a possible trade deal with China. The news comes after Trump and Xi’s telephonic conversation ahead of the G-20 Summit.
  • The news is helping the CNY, risk currencies and most majors score gains against the US dollar. The anti-risk Japanese yen, however, is on the defensive against the greenback. The price action in the FX markets is indicative of a solid risk-on action during the day ahead.
  • The USD/JPY witnessed a falling wedge breakout a few minutes before press time and is currently trading at 113.00. The pattern indicates a resumption of the rally from the Oct. 26 low of 111.38 and could yield re-test of the recent high of $113.38.
  • The RSI on the hourly chart has also turned bullish above 50.00.
