USD/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 115.74; (P) 115.99; (R1) 116.36; More…

USD/JPY is staying in consolidation below 116.34 temporary top and intraday bias remains neutral. Some consolidations could be seen but downside should be contained well above 114.26 support turned resistance to bring another rally. On the upside, sustained break of 61.8% projection of 109.11 to 115.51 from 112.52 at 116.47 will pave the way to 100% projection at 118.90, which is close to 118.65 long term resistance.

In the bigger picture, no change in the view that rise from 102.58 is the third leg of the up trend from 101.18 (2020 low). Such rally should target a test on 118.65 (2016 high). Sustained break there will pave the way to 120.85 (2015 high) and raise the chance of long term up trend resumption. For now, this will remain the favored case as long as 112.52 support holds, in case of deep pull back.
