Key quotes

“A further dramatic surge higher has seen USD/JPY break with ease its long-term downtrend from October 2018 and the trend is seen staying directly higher for a test of long-term resistance, seen starting at the 111.68/72 March 2020 high and stretching up to the 112.40 high of 2019, also the 61.8% retracement of the 2016/2020 bear trend.”  

“We look for the 112.40 level to finally cap and for a consolidation/corrective phase to emerge. Should strength instead directly extend, we see resistance next at 114.00/05.”  

“Support moves to 110.73 initially, then 110.56, with 110.27 needed to ease the immediate upside bias for a fall back to 109.85/75, but with fresh buyers expected here.”
