Technical analysis of USD/JPY for December 13, 2017


USD/JPY is expected to trade with a bullish bias above 113.15. The pair has located a key support at 113.30. Currently it has entered a consolidation phase initiated from a high of 113.75 marked yesterday (December 12). It is trading at levels below both the 20-period and 50-period moving averages, and the relative strength index has returned to the levels below the neutrality level of 50.
