USDJPY – Awaiting Breakout Confirmation (Video)

After breaking back into bullish territory – above the ichimoku cloud – earlier in the week, USDJPY looks to be on a roll and could be on course to make some further gains in the coming months.

The last couple of days has seen it come off a little though, presenting an interesting test for the pair. Will we get confirmation of the initial breakout or are we headed lower again?

Senior Market Analyst Craig Erlam discusses all of today’s events impacting the pair and gives his analysis of the charts.
