FX:USDJPY   U.S. Dollar/Japanese Yen

"The higher dollar trend is becoming more evident against the yen. But the move broadly remains within an adjustment from the post-Fed bearishness."
- Jun Kato, Shinkin Asset Management (based on Bloomberg)

Pair's Outlook

The US Dollar             was able to outperform the Japanese Yen             on Thursday, with the 20-day SMA limiting the gains. The same level is acting as the closest resistance today, thus, might trigger a sell-off, erasing most of yesterday's gains. The nearest support rests at 112.11, represented by the weekly PP, but in case bulls manage to push the USD/JPY             currency pair over the 20-day SMA , then the current descending channel's upper border is likely to stop the rally. Moreover, this resistance trend-line is also reinforced by the weekly R1. Meanwhile, technical indicators are now giving mixed signals, unable to confirm either scenario.
