USD/JPY Analysis

The JPY strengthened yesterday across the board, driving the price down close to the support level at 102.13. It does look quite weak and I will be very cautious about taking any long off 102.13. A retest of the broken bearish trend lines might be a better trade, but price action following the London open this morning should tell us the answer.

Ahead, there is a key resistance level and round number at 103.00.

USDJPY Signal 61014

There are no high-impact news events scheduled for today concerning either the JPY or the USD. It will probably be a quiet day for this pair.
