Technical analysis of USD/JPY for July 03, 2017


USD/JPY is expected to trade with bullish outlook above 112.20. Although the pair broke below the 20-period moving average, it is still trading above the rising 50-period moving average which plays a support role. The downside potential should be limited by the key support at 112.05.

Therefore, as long as 112.20 holds on the downside, look for a new rebound to 113.20 and even to 113.70 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction as predicted, a short position is recommended below 112.20 with targets at 111.70 and 111.35.
