Technical analysis of USD/JPY for August 14, 2017


USD/JPY is expected to trade in higher range. Although the pair posted a pullback, it is still trading above its rising 20-period and 50-period moving averages. The relative strength index is above its neutrality level at 50. Even though a continuation of the consolidation cannot be ruled out, its extent should be limited.

To sum up, while the price is above 109.25, look for a further advance to 110.00 and even to 110.30 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction, a short position is recommended below 109.25 with a target at 108.85.
