USD/JPY Analysis

Since my previous forecast last Thursday morning, the price did make a new 6-year high before falling off. However the lows seem to be holding so there is no strong reason yet to abandon a bullish bias.

The USD remains strong and the JPY remains weak.

There are likely to be buying opportunities below the key swing low at 104.67. If we keep falling below that, we are quite likely to find some support in the zone around the last two weekly opens in the area above 104.00.

If we fall and remain below 104.00, that would be a very bearish sign.

USDJPY 9814

There are no high-impact data releases scheduled today concerning either the JPY or the USD. It should be a quiet day.
