USD/JPY Ascending Scallop Formed Straight After the Gap

By Admiral Markets

Following the possibly most substantial US tax overhaul since the 1980s, the US Senate gave a significant boost to the USD last night. The corporate tax rate should be cut from 35 percent to 20 percent. The USD/JPY opened much higher than it closed on Friday, making a runaway gap that hasn’t been closed as of yet. Previous analysis followed exactly as planned before the pair dropped due to out of the blue news that Flynn will testify against Trump.

At this point, the USD/JPY is barely retracing from the W H4/ ATR pivot confluence -113.05-20 zone. It could go for 112.65 retest, but the gap will be almost closed completely only if it gets to POC zone 112.20-45. There we could see a bounce towards the 113.60 zone. However, if we don’t see a retracement, then pay attention to 113.20. The move above it might lead to 113.60.
