USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Defends 7-month rising trendline, eyes corrective rally above 112.00

  • The USD/JPY has bounced off the trendline connecting the March 26 low and Aug. 21 low.
  • The relative strength index (RSI) on the 4-hour chart continues to diverge in favor of the bulls. Further, MACD on the 4-hour chart has produced a bullish crossover.
  • As a result, the pair could see a stronger move toward the 10-day exponential moving average (EMA), currently located at 112.53. 
  • A daily close below the 7-month trendline would strengthen the bear grip.
