Daily Pivots: (S1) 106.79; (P) 107.11; (R1) 107.42; More…

Intraday bias in USD/JPY remains neutral for the moment. We’re still favoring the case that corrective recovery from 104.45 has completed at 108.47. Thus, risk will remain on the downside as long as 108.47 resistance holds. On the downside, break of 106.48 will turn bias back to the downside for retesting 104.45 low. On the upside, break of 108.47 will dampen this view and resume the rebound from 104.45 to 109.31 key resistance.

In the bigger picture, decline from 118.65 (Dec 2016) is still in progress and the pair is staying well inside long term falling channel. Firm break of 104.69 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. However, firm break of 109.31 will be the first sign of medium term reversal and bring stronger rise to 112.40 resistance for confirmation.
