USD/JPY Analysis

This pair came roaring back yesterday, and feels as if it is not done yet as it now seems set to challenge 106.00. This feels to me as if it will be the obvious trade of the day or at least the moment as at the time of writing.

Attention should be paid to the fact that we are approaching an area that has been very pivotal for a long time with a lot of key resistance beginning at about 106.41. I doubt this could break in the very near term.

USDJPY

There is nothing due today regarding the JPY. Concerning the USD, there will be a release of Unemployment Claims data at 1:30pm London time.
