USD/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 121.03; (P) 122.12; (R1) 122.92; More…

USD/JPY is holding on to 121.17 support and intraday bias remains neutral. Further rally is still mildly in favor. On the upside, above 125.09 will target 161.8% projection of 109.11 to 116.34 from 114.40 at 126.09, which is close to 125.85 long term resistance. However, break of 121.17 will indicate short term topping, and bring deeper pull back.

In the bigger picture, up trend from 98.97 (2016 low) in in progress for retesting 125.85 (2015 high). Sustained break there will confirm long term up trend resumption. Next target will be 61.8% projection of 75.56 (2011 low) to 125.85 (2015 high) from 98.97 at 130.04. This will now remain the favored case as long as 116.34 resistance turned support holds.
