Technical analysis of USD/JPY for October 30, 2017


USD/JPY is under pressure and is expected to trade in a lower range. The pair is trading below its declining 20-period and 50-period moving averages, which play resistance roles and maintain the downside bias. The relative strength index is bearish and calls for a further decline.

To sum up, as long as 114.00 is not surpassed, look for a new test with targets at 113.00 and 112.70 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction, a long position is recommended above 114.00 with a target at 114.30.
