USD/JPY - Surging Higher
USD/JPY surged higher yesterday, breaking the resistance area defined by 102.27 (03/07/2014 high) and 102.36. Prices are now challenging the key resistance at 103.02. An hourly support stands at 102.36 (previous resistance).
A long-term bullish bias is favoured as long as the key support 99.57 (19/11/2013 low) holds. However, a break to the upside out of the current consolidation phase between 100.76 (04/02/2014 low) and 103.02 is needed to resume the underlying bullish trend. A major resistance stands at 110.66 (15/08/2008 high).
