For last few days, the price has not shown any progress in any direction rather than certain rejections on both side of the market indicating confused market sentiment in the market. Today, Japan's Current Account report was published which showed an increase to 2.27T from the previous figure of 2.03T which was expected to be at 1.98T and Economic Watchers Sentiment report also showed an increase to 51.3 from the previous figure of 49.7 which was expected to be at 49.9.

Later, if the price break below 110.60 with a daily close, then we will be looking forward for the price to move down towards 108.30 in the future.
