FX:USDJPY   U.S. Dollar / Japanese Yen
Hello everyone, as we all know the market action discounts everything :)

_________________________________Make sure to Like and Follow if you like the idea_________________________________

The USDJPY pair started this session with a Bullish move driving the price back to 110.08 from 109.74, The Bulls now are eyeing every move of the market waiting for the opportunity to push the price and close above the 110.00 levels for creating a support zone at that level that would be able to help the market back to the 111.00 level.

If we applied the Elliot wave theory to the market we can see that the market is having its 3rd impulse wave right now which could be the move that drives the price above the 111,00 level.

Different Scenarios for the market

Scenario 1 :

The price has reached the resistance zone from 109.92 - 110.08, The Bulls are trying to power up in the hope for a breakout of that zone where this could indicate a start for a next Bullish move that could lead the price near the 110.625 resistance like where the Bulls will test the Bears hoping to start a big bullish move that could lead the market back up to the 111,00 level.

Scenario 2 :

The price has reached the resistance zone from 109.92 - 110.08, The Bears are trying to take control back from the bulls in hope of driving the price back down, the battle is still going at that resistance zone , In case the Bears got control then we will see the price go down to the first support line at 109.750 where the bulls will have to defend for any hope to end this sideways move in their favor.

Fundamental point of view :

A combination of supporting factors undermined the Japanese yen and assisted the USD/JPY pair to gain some positive traction for the second successive session on Monday. A goodish rebound in the equity markets dented demand for the traditional safe-haven JPY, which was further undermined by the worsening COVID-19 situation in Japan.

Apart from this, weaker PMI prints out of Japan further acted as a headwind for the JPY. Japan PMI Manufacturing eased from 53.0 to 52.4 in August and the gauge for the services sector dropped sharply from 47.4 to 43.5, marking the worst reading in 15 months. This added to worries about the economic fallout from the continuous rise in COVID-19 cases.

Bullish traders further took cues from a modest uptick in the US Treasury bond yields, tough the ongoing US dollar profit-taking slide might cap gains for the USD/JPY pair. The uncertainties tied to the COVID-19 situation might have forced investors to reassess the timing of the Fed's tapering, which, in turn, prompted some USD profit-taking. According to FXSTREET
