USD/JPY Heading Higher

USD/JPY bounce from 106.90 low continues, the pair broke hourly resistance at 107.90 (14/02/2018). Heading along the 109 range. The bearish pattern started in January 2018 is weakening. Hourly support and resistance are given at 105.55 (16/02/2018 low) and 110.26 (05/02/2018 high). The short-term technical structure suggests continued short-term upward moves.

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 below its 200 DMA.
