USDJPYM30.png

Our first target which we predicted in the previous analysis has been hit. USD/JPY is expected to trade with a bullish outlook. Currently, the pair is trading at levels around the ascending 20-period moving average, which has just crossed above the 50-period one. And the relative strength index has managed to stay above the neutrality level of 50, indicating a lack of downward momentum for the pair. As long as intraday bullishness is maintained, the pair should revisit 109.90 on the upside.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction, a Short position is recommended to be below 109.10 with a target of 108.90.

Chart Explanation: The black line shows the pivot point. The current price above the pivot point indicates a bullish position, while the price below the pivot point is a signal for a short position. The red lines show the support levels, and the green line indicates the resistance level. These levels can be used to enter and exit trades.

Strategy: BUY, stop loss at 108.80, take profit at 109.75.

Resistance levels: 109.70, 110.75, and 111.00

Support levels: 108.40, 108.10, and 107.75.
