USD/JPY closed with bearish tone at 113.80.

The US dollar fell against the Japanese yen on Friday. By the close of US trading, USD / JPY was trading at 113.78, losing 0.25%. I believe that support is now at around 112.94, the low of Wednesday, and the resistance is likely at the level of 114.09 - the maximum of Thursday.
After the USD/JPY pair has set fresh 1-month high, now is trying to retain the 114.00 level. The four hour time frame is showing that the pair continues trading well above its 100-day and 200-day SMAs and both are gaining ground just modestly, some 100 pips below the current level. Technical indicators in the same chart ease within positive levels, the Momentum at fresh daily lows and the RSI barely easing from overbought territory with last one limiting the downside potential. Bulls and bears are now battling for dominance. Should the pair lose the 113.85, the immediate support, bears will take control and the pair could extend its retracement then, down to 113.40. Above the mentioned high, on the other hand, the pair has room to extend its advance up to 114.54, the October monthly high.
USD/JPY pulled back from the daily highs and fell below 114.00. The pair closed the previous day with modest losses, and today gained some traction rising to a daily high of 114.15 before losing its bullish momentum. The initial for aligns at 114.20 ahead of 114.55 and 115.00 ( the psychological level). The downside offers supports at 113.60, 113.00 and 112.00 (the psychological level).
USD/JPY: The pair tried to rise up yesterday, reaching a peak of 114.20, but closed lower at 113.83. The views are neutral for now, probably with light bearish signals for testing 113.40 / 00. But as price stays above the trendline, I stay up and every downward pressure can be seen as a good opportunity for long positions. On the upside, 114.70 remains an important resistance. A clear break and daily closing over it can open the doors to 115.50 or higher.
The USD/JPY fell to 113.29 and reached a new weekly low. Currently is trading few pips above the level by the end of the US session. On the four hour time frame the pair is developing well above its 100 and 200 SMA, both around the 113.00 level and with the shortest advancing below the larger one as technical indicatorsresume their declines within negative levels, skewing the risk to the downside. Renewed selling interest below 113.20, now the immediate support should lead to a steeper decline, particularly if Asian shares follow the lead of their overseas counterparts.
USD/JPY is extending its slide toward 113.00 handle today despite the upbeat US retail sales data. On the four hour time frame the price is developing around the mild bullish 100-day SMA before bouncing and currently is trading around the daily highs. Technical indicators also recovered after nearing oversold readings, holding below their midlines but with an increased upward strength, indicating that the pair could continue recovering ground. The key will be stocks´ behavior as a mirror of the market's sentiment. Should equities continue recovering, the pair could regain the 114.00 level, although a turn to the worst in sentiment will likely see it back challenging the 113.00/10 support zone.

Technicalindicators have stabilized with the stochastic holding near oversold readings and the RSI up from its lows but far into negative ground, indicating the absence of buying interest.
