Technical analysis of USD/JPY for December 01, 2017


All our upside targets which we predicted in yesterday's analysis have been hit. The pair posted a strong rebound after marking a low of 111.71 overnight (November 30). Currently, it is trading at levels above the key support at 112.20 while being supported by the ascending 50-period moving average. The relative strength index is around the neutrality level of 50, showing a lack of momentum toward either direction. As long as the key support at 112.20 is not breached, the intraday outlook remains bullish, and the pair still stands chances of rising toward the first upside target at 113.00.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction, a short position is recommended below 112.20 with a target of 113.00.
