USD/JPY - Consolidating After Bearish Breakout
USD/JPY's medium term momentum is clearly negative. On the short-term, the pair has broken short-term uptrend channel. Hourly resistance is given at 113.80 (29/03/2016 high) while stronger resistance is given at 114.91 (16/02/2016 high). Hourly support is given at 110.67 (17/03/2016 low). Expected to remain mixed.
We favour a long-term bearish bias. Support at 105.23 (15/10/2014 low) is on target. A gradual rise towards the major resistance at 135.15 (01/02/2002 high) seems now less likely. Another key support can be found at 105.23 (15/10/2014 low).
