Technical analysis of USD/JPY for February 01, 2018


All our targets which predicted in yesterday's analysis have been hit. USD/JPY is expected to continue an upward movement. The pair rebounded from the rising 20-period moving average after a pullback from 109.10. The relative strength index has just landed on its neutrality level at 50 and is turning up. The downside potential should be limited by the key support at 108.95.

Hence, as long as this key level is not broken, look for a further rise with targets at 109.75 and 110 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction, a Short position is recommended to be below 109.10 with a target of 108.85.
