Daily Pivots: (S1) 108.95; (P) 109.27; (R1) 109.81; More…

USD/JPY’s break of 110.00 resistance suggests resumption of rebound from 104.69. Intraday bias is turned back to the upside for 61.8% retracement of 114.54 to 104.69 at 110.77. For now, we’d still expect strong resistance from there to limit upside. On the downside, break of 108.49 support will now confirm completion of the rebound and bring retest of 104.69 low. However, sustained trading above 110.77 will dampen our bearish view and target a test on 114.54 resistance instead.

In the bigger picture, while the rebound from 104.69 is strong, there is no change in the view that it’s a corrective move. That is, fall from 114.54, as part of the decline from 118.65 (2016 high), is not completed yet. Break of 104.62 will target 100% projection of 118.65 to 104.62 from 114.54 at 100.51, which is close to 100 psychological level. Nevertheless, sustained trading above 55 day EMA (now at 110.55) will dampen this bearish view and turn focus back to 114.54 resistance instead.
