Technical analysis of USD/JPY for February 22, 2018


USD/JPY is expected to trade with bullish above 107.00. The pair keeps challenging the overhead resistance at 107.90. Currently intraday bullishness is maintained by those well-directed 20-period and 50-period moving averages. And the relative strength index refuses to stay below the neutrality level of 50, showing a lack of downward momentum for the pair. Upon crossing 107.90, the pair should proceed toward the second upside target at 108.40.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction, a short position is recommended to be above 107.00 with a target of 107.90.
