USD/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 110.64; (P) 111.11; (R1) 111.37; More….

Intraday bias in USD/JPY remains on the downside for the moment. As noted before, corrective fall from 118.65 is still in progress and is possibly resuming. Break of 110.10 will confirm this bearish case and target 50% retracement of 98.97 to 118.65 at 108.81. On the upside, break of 112.19 resistance is needed to confirm near term reversal. Otherwise, outlook will stay mildly bearish in case of recovery.

In the bigger picture, price actions from 125.85 high are seen as a corrective pattern. The impulsive structure of the rise from 98.97 suggests that the correction is completed and larger up trend is resuming. Decisive break of 125.85 will confirm and target 61.8% projection of 75.56 to 125.85 from 98.97 at 130.04 and then 135.20 long term resistance. Nonetheless, sustained trading below 55 week EMA (now at 111.16) will extend the consolidation from 125.85 with another fall through 98.97 before completion.
