USD/JPY is teasing a flag breakout on the 15-minute chart, which is confirmed, could yield a re-test of the 200-day moving average (MA), currently located at 111.25.  

15-minute chart

As seen above, the pair is currently probing the upper edge of the flag. A convincing break above higher would open up upside toward 111.50 (target as per the measured move method).  

That looks likely as pair not only closed back above the ascending 10-day MA yesterday but has bounced off the equally bullish 5-day MA earlier today.
