  • USD/JPY remains positive around three week top amid optimism surrounding the US-China trade deal.
  • Pair’s sustained trading beyond 200-day SMA favors run-up to monthly high, 110.00 round-figure.

Following the USD/JPY pair’s first positive closing beyond 200-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) in nearly three weeks, the quote takes the bids to 109.15 amid pre-European session on Wednesday.

As a result, traders will now take aim at the monthly high close to 109.50 ahead of targeting the 110.00. Also, 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of April-August downpour, at 109.40, can offer an additional upside barrier.

On the contrary, a daily closing below 200-day SMA level of 108.93 could drag the quote to a 50% Fibonacci retracement level of 108.45 and monthly support line near 108.35.
