USD/JPY technical perspective

"With stocks also heading higher, the pair may attempt to extend the rally up to 98.60, 100 DMA", says Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXstreet.com. "The hourly chart shows a strong upward momentum with price well above moving averages, supporting an upward continuation in the short term, as long as 97.85 support attracts buyers".
