Daily Pivots: (S1) 111.79; (P) 112.04; (R1) 112.42; More…

Intraday bias in USD/JPY remains neutral for the moment. Another decline is expected as long as 112.57 minor resistance holds. Below 111.64 will target 55 day EMA (now at 111.40) first. Sustained break there will target 107.31 and possibly below. Nonetheless, above 112.57 will bring retest of 113.43. Break there will resume whole rise from 107.31 for 114.49 key resistance.

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 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.
