Daily Pivots: (S1) 109.51; (P) 109.88; (R1) 110.53; More…

Outlook in USD/JPY remains unchanged. While the rebound from 107.31 is strong, it’s limited below 110.66 resistance so far. Outlook stays bearish and another fall is still expected. Break of 107.31 will extend the whole fall from 118.65 to 61.8% retracement of 98.97 to 118.65 at 106.48 first. We’d look for support from there to bring rebound. But firm break of 106.48 will extend the decline to 100% projection of 118.65 to 108.12 from 114.49 at 103.96 or below. On the upside, firm break of 110.66 will confirm short term bottoming and turn bias back to the upside.

In the bigger picture, rise from 98.97 (2016 low) is now seen as the second leg of the corrective pattern from 125.85 (2015 high). It’s unclear whether this this second leg has completed at 118.65 or not. But medium term outlook will be mildly bearish as long as 114.49 resistance holds. And, there is prospect of breaking 98.97 ahead. Meanwhile, break of 114.49 will bring retest of 125.85 high. But even in that case, we don’t expect a break there on first attempt.
