The dollar / yen made a significant upside momentum yesterday, breaking through the range. My upward pattern is activated again. The trading signals are bullish for the testing 111.00 - 111.50. Support for the day is 110.00, whose breakthrough can take the price to a neutral zone with testing 109.50, but overall I still prefer the bullish scenario at this stage and every bearish pressure should be considered a good opportunity to buy.
The USDJPY has broken above the 110.87 level where we can find a 61.8% Fibonacci Retracement, however after the breakout the pair leaves behind a long upper shadow which is indicating that the sellers are coming into the market. Therefore, the USDJPY may try to correct to the downside.
Growth in the pair USD/JPY 'stalled' during the last few days of the exchange. The pair could now be on top if the yield on long-term US securities were also high: the situation with the latter is still unclear. The resistance level is now observed in the zone 110,00-25, attention to which was riveted when moving upwards.
The US dollar was up against the Japanese yen on Friday. By the close of US trading, USD/JPY was trading at 109.38, gaining 0.12%. I believe that support is now at around 108.96, Thursday's low, and resistance is likely at 111.39, Monday's high.
USD/JPY lost the bullish strength and is hovering around 109.50. The pair will need to regain the 109.90 level in order to avoid the negative stance. Meanwhile the renewed selling interest below 109.00 might bring break of the 108.00 handle next week.
