Daily Pivots: (S1) 109.42; (P) 109.79; (R1) 110.05; More…

USD/JPY’s decline accelerates today and immediate focus is now on 109.10 support. Firm break there will argue that larger fall from 111.65 is resuming. Intraday bias will be turned back to the downside for 108.71 support first, and then 38.2% retracement of 102.58 to 111.65 at 108.18 next. On the upside, break of 110.44 resistance will turn bias back to the upside for 110.79 first.

In the bigger picture, medium term outlook is staying neutral with 111.71 resistance intact. The pattern from 101.18 could still extend with another falling leg. Sustained trading below 55 day EMA will bring deeper fall to 107.47 support and below. Nevertheless, strong break of 111.71 resistance will confirm completion of the corrective decline from 118.65 (2016 high). Further rise should then be seen to 114.54 and then 118.65 resistance.
