Technical analysis of USD/JPY for May 02, 2018


All our upward targets which we predicted in the previous analysis have been hit. USD/JPY is expected to trade in a higher range. The technical outlook of the pair is bullish as the prices have recorded a series of higher tops and higher bottoms since April 27. The upward momentum is further reinforced by both rising 20-period and 50-peirod moving averages. The relative strength index advocates for further upside. Hence, above 109.50, look for an advance with targets at 110.00 and 110.30 in extension.
