Key quotes

“USD/JPY is poised to reach the 55-day ma at 105.91 and the short-term downtrend at 105.90, and will ideally fail in this vicinity. A negative bias will remain entrenched below here.”

“The 104.00 support guards the 103.43/78.6% Fibonacci retracement, which is the last defence for the 101.18 March low.”

“The market will need to regain 107.05, the recent high, to trigger a move to the 200-day ma at 107.58.”
