USD/JPY Analysis

The strong bullishness has continued, and we almost hit 120.00 already this morning. There are really no good levels at which to look for short trades, although the heavy roundness of 120 might make this a natural area for profit taking, meaning we might not really break through it for a while.

Fortunately there are nnatural areas below us where resistance seems to have flipped to support, most notably at the round number of 119.00. There is also a bullish trend line below that, currently sitting at about 118.50.
