USD/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 139.50; (P) 139.89; (R1) 140.49; More…

USD/JPY retreats notably in early US session. But further rally is still expected as long as 139.27 support holds. Current rise from 127.20 should now target 142.48 fibonacci level next. Nevertheless, break of 139.27 will now indicate short term topping and turn bias back to the downside.

In the bigger picture, rise from 127.20 is seen as the second leg of the corrective pattern from 151.93 high. Stronger rally would be seen to 61.8% retracement of 151.93 to 127.20 at 142.48. Sustained break there will pave the way back to retest 151.93. On the downside, however, decisive break of 137.90 resistance turned support will now be the first indicate that this rebound from 127.20 has completed already.
