Daily Pivots: (S1) 107.81; (P) 108.07; (R1) 108.20; More…

Intraday bias in USD/JPY is turned to the downside with break of 107.79 temporary low. Corrective rebound from 106.78 should have completed at 108.99, after rejection by 55 day EMA. Break of 106.78 support will resumer larger decline from 112.40 to retest 104.69 low. On the upside, break of 108.99 resistance is needed to confirm resumption of rebound from 106.78. Otherwise, risk will remain on the downside in case of recovery.

In the bigger picture, decline from 118.65 (Dec 2016) is still in progress, with the pair staying inside long term falling channel. Break of 104.62 will target 100% projection of 118.65 to 104.62 from 114.54 at 100.51. For now, we’d expect strong support above 98.97 (2016 low) to contain downside to bring rebound. In any case, break of 112.40 is needed to the first serious sign of medium term bullishness. Otherwise, further decline will remain in favor in case of rebound.
