Technical analysis of USD/JPY for April 19, 2018


Our first target which we predicted in the previous analysis has been hit. USD/JPY is expected to trade in higher range. The pair is posting a new upleg while striking against the upper Bollinger band. Strong upward momentum is evidenced by the relative strength index, which is well directed in the 60s. It is on track to revisit 107.40 (around the high of yesterday, April 18). Above that level, it could target 107.60 on the upside. Key support is located at 107.05.
