Using the "technical Insight" research tool under the Market Analysis tab, we have identified a bullish technical event in the USD/JPY.

USDJPY confirms an "Inside Bar" pattern.

An inside bar tells us the balance between buyers and sellers, recently dominated by the bears, is evening out. We may see higher prices ahead.

An Inside Bar develops during a strong downtrend, when the trading range is completely within the boundaries of the prior bar. This suggests the balance between buyers and sellers is becoming more evenly balanced i.e. a weakening in power for the bears and increasing in power for the bulls.
