USD/JPY forms falling wedge pattern

As it was expected, the currency exchange rate made a rebound from combined resistance formed by the monthly PP and the falling 55- and 100-hour SMAs.

However, fears over impact of the new US tax reform that was passed by the House last night led to sharp apperception of all safe have assets, including the Yen. On the one hand, lower support line of the currently active descending channel sustained the bearish pressure.

On the other hand, inability of the rate to break to the top three days in a raw points out on transformation of this pattern into the falling wedge formation. In any case, a sudden breakout to the north is not expected due to development of another resistance barrier consisting from the falling 55-hour SMA and the weekly S1.
