“Japan released the final version of the March Leading Economic Index, which came in at 84.7, better than the previously estimated 83.8. The Coincident Index for the same month was downwardly revised to 90.2.” 

“In the 4-hour chart, the USD/JPY pair holds just above a flat 20 SMA, which develops above the larger ones, as technical indicators hover directionless around their midlines. Being at the upper end of its latest range, chances of a downward move seem limited.”

“To gain bullish traction, USD/JPY would need to accelerate above 108.08, last week’s high.”
