USD/JPY Analysis

This pair did little yesterday and the essential technical picture is unchanged. The likely support at 101.63 is still quite confluent with the remaining long-term bullish trend line, as well as the GMT daily S2 pivot point, so it should prove to be supportive if reached. Above us is likely support turned to resistance at around 103.75. We are about 100 pips from both of these levels so it might well be that neither level is reached today:
