USD/JPY has been a range bound 110 pip play throughout global markets today and as we approach the closing hours we look for a technical solution. Eric Theoret, Currency Strategist at Scotiabank suggests that there are short-term technical that are painting a bearish out look for USD/JPY. ”The MACD and RSI are only modestly bearish, providing for ample downside in the event of a decline. However, we note steady support in the 101.00 to 101.20 range. For resistance, we look to the 9 day MA (101.48) followed by the 21 day MA (101.67)."
