Technical analysis of USD/JPY for August 08, 2017


USD/JPY is expected to trade with bullish bias above 110.15. The pair is consolidating above the key support at 110.15, which should limit the downside potential. The relative strength index is above its neutrality level at 50 and lacks downward momentum.

Therefore, as long as 110.15 is not broken, look for a further rise to 110.80 and even to 111.05 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction, a short position is recommended below 110.15 with a target at 109.15.
