USD/JPY Analysis

We did dip yesterday before rising back up to around the 104.10 area, from which we have now fallen again. The daily candle ended as a bullish pin bar, but its location in the broader picture means this is not very significant.

It is still worth having a bullish bias as there is no very clear resistance before the 105.00 level above us, and this pair more than any other moved strongly last week.

Today will probably be a very quiet day, but there is a chance for more long trades below 103.74, possibly around 103.50 as I identified yesterday, or even lower at 103.00. I suspect we will not really be able to break below 103.50 today in any event.

USDJPY 82714

There are no high-impact data releases due today concerning either the JPY or the USD, so it likely to be a quiet day.
