Technical analysis of USD/JPY for December 07, 2017


USD/JPY is expected to trade with a bullish outlook. The pair dipped below 112.00 yesterday (December 6) before posting a rebound. Currently, it has shot above the upper Bollinger band, calling for further acceleration to the upside. Meanwhile, the 20-period moving average has just crossed above the 50-period one, and the relative strength index has entered the 60s, confirming a reversal to intraday bullishness. The pair is therefore expected to proceed toward the overhead resistance at 113.10 before advancing further to 113.35. Key support is located at 112.25.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction, a short position is recommended below 112.25 with a target of 112.00.
