USD/JPY sharp rise is fading, heading lower along the 106.30 range. Hourly support and resistance are given at 104.97 (11/10/2016 high) and 107.27 (25/02/2018 high). The bearish pattern started in January 2018 is maintained. The short-term technical structure suggests short-term decrease.
We favor a long-term bearish bias. Support remains at 101.20 (09/11/2016 low). A gradual rise toward the major resistance at 125.86 (05/06/2015 high) seems unlikely. Expected to decline further support at 101.20 (09/11/2016 low). The pair trades largely below its 200 DMA.
