Daily Pivots: (S1) 111.27; (P) 111.90; (R1) 112.33; More…

Intraday bias in USD/JPY remains neutral for the moment. Further rise is in favor with 111.07 support intact. Sustained break of medium term channel resistance (now at 112.90) will argue that whole correction from 118.65 has completed. In that case, further rise should be seen to 114.49 resistance for confirmation. However, break of 111.07 minor support will raise the risk of rejection from channel resistance and turn bias back to the downside for 55 day EMA (now at 110.64) and below.

In the bigger picture, rise from 98.97 (2016 low) is 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.
