USD/JPY Analysis: To Put 111.80 To The Test

Typography

Even though the USD/JPY currency pair remained relatively unchanged on Friday, the bullish momentum seems to be intact. A new trend-line is supporting the pair’s exchange rate, but is unlikely to last long due to its sharp angle. Nevertheless, the Buck is likely to appreciate again today, as there are no significant bearish signals. The recovery could well last until the 111.80 level is reached, where the monthly pivot point rests. Resistance here could be sufficient to reverse momentum, as the Greenback was forced to edge lower in a similar situation in the beginning of the month. A successful breach of the monthly PP, on the other hand, should open the door for a much stronger recovery, with the main target being the 114.40 handle, namely the May’s high.
