Technical analysis of USD/JPY for October 20, 2017


USD/JPY is expected to continue the upside movement. The pair is trading above its rising 20-period and 50-period moving averages, which play support roles and maintain the upside bias. The relative strength index is above its neutrality level at 50 and lacks downward momentum.

To conclude, as long as 112.70 is not broken, look for a further upside to 113.80 and even to 114.05 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction, a short position is recommended below 112.70 with a target at 113.80.

Chart Explanation: The black line shows the pivot point. The current price above the pivot point indicates a bullish position, while the price below the pivot point is a signal for a short position. The red lines show the support levels and the green line indicates the resistance level. These levels can be used to enter and exit trades.
