USDJPY is champing at the bit of local resistance above 110.00 as EU and US yields have suddenly come alive here ahead of the Jackson Hole speech from Fed Chair Powell . Entirely unsure whether that speech will have major implications for the US treasury market in the near term, but if yields do pop back higher, we will likely suddenly have a different setup for USDJPY, which could go on to challenge its cycle top in the event the US 10-year treasury benchmark, for example, goes on to pop above the big 1.50% area (1.35% currently). The higher yield threat will need to fade to see the pair challenging back toward that 109.00 area that didn’t sustain the break earlier this month. The setup here echoes the triangulation in the price action back in Nov-Jan before US yields staged a major revival. Note the Ichimoku cloud levels in play here as well.
