  • The USD/JPY is eyeing a break above 112.00, having witnessed a bull flag-breakout on the hourly chart in the US session yesterday.
  • However, the upside has been capped by the upper Bollinger band (standard deviation of +2, -2 on the 20-hour moving average).
  • So, what bull need now is a convincing move above the resistance of the upper Bollinger band, currently located at 111.81.
