USD/JPY strategic bias

According to Valeria Bednarik, an analyst at, “The hourly chart shows indicators for the USD/JPY maintain an upward tone, with the price retraces some from the highs and approaching immediate short-term support around 100.30. As long as above the level, there’s little risk of short-term slides, yet once below, the pair is exposed back to the downside, probably falling back below the 100.00 mark.”

In recent moments the USD/JPY is navigating the region of 100.62 up +0.11% above its opening. Briefing the technical levels, a push higher will test resistances at 100.81 (July 9 low), onto 101.19 (July 10 high), and 101.30 (July 9 high).
