Third time’s a charm. USD/JPY finally broke the magical 100 line, that worked as fierce resistance and as a double top in recent weeks.

It made the break in a relatively odd hour: during the US session, after Europe had already gone home.  One would expect a more liquid hour such as the overlap between the US and European sessions, or during the Asian session.

Update: USD/JPY is already close to the next resistance line: 101.44.

The pair began its rise after the excellent jobless claims report from the US and climbed back above 99. It later made a second surge, after the European close. For more, here is the USDJPY forecast and a live chart of USD/JPY:
