USD/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 116.79; (P) 117.48; (R1) 117.92; More…

USD/JPY’s consolidation from 118.65 extends with another fall but stays above 114.76 support. Intraday bias remains neutral for the moment. At this point, we’d continue to expect downside to be contained by 114.76 support and bring rally resumption finally. Above 118.65 will extend the whole rise from 98.97 to 125.85 key resistance next. However, sustained break of 114.76 will confirm short term topping and bring deeper pull back to 55 day EMA (now at 112.67) and possibly below.

In the bigger picture, price actions from 125.85 high are seen as a corrective pattern. The impulsive structure of the rise from 98.97 suggests that the corrective is completed and larger up trend is resuming. Decisive break of 125.85 will confirm and target 61.8% projection of 75.56 to 125.85 from 98.97 at 130.04 and then 135.20 long term resistance.
