USD/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 112.13; (P) 112.48; (R1) 113.06; More…

USD/JPY weakens mildly today but stays inside range of 111.58/114.94. Intraday bias remains neutral at this point. The corrective fall from 1118.65 could extend lower. But we’d still expect strong support from 38.2% retracement of 98.97 to 118.65 at 111.13 to contain downside and bring rebound. On the upside, above 114.94 resistance should confirm completion of pull back from 118.65. In such case, intraday bias will be turned back to the upside for retesting 118.65.

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 correction 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. Rejection from 125.85 and below will extend the consolidation with another falling leg before up trend resumption.
