“USD/JPY is pushing slowly higher, directly overhead lies the March 2017 high at 115.51 as well as the 115.60 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the move down from 2015 being in focus and for now we will cover our remaining longs.”
“Above here is the 117.56 level, the 1998-2021 resistance line and 119.41, the downtrend from 1975.”
“We have a near-term uptrend at 113.92. Nearby support below 113.92 lies at 112.73/112.56, then the 111.66 July high which should hold the downside.”
