USD/JPY Analysis

Yesterday I anticipated that we would not be able to break below 103.50. The picture is still bullish.

We dipped below 103.74 overnight, so it is now possible to look for long trades after we made a strong first higher low on a short-term chart.

If that does not happen and we fall instead to 103.50 after making a new low for the day, this could be an excellent level for the price to turn around bullishly and provide us with a long trade.

There is no very obvious resistance before the 105.00 level.

USDJPY 82814

There are no high-impact data releases schedules for a specific time today concerning the JPY. Regarding the USD, there will be Preliminary GDP and Unemployment Claims at 1:30pm London time, followed by Pending Home Sales at 3pm. Therefore the New York session is likely to be more active.
