USD/JPY Analysis: Surges To 114.00 Amid Abe's Victory


In accordance with experts' expectations, the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his Liberal Democratic Party secured their seats for another term.

Anticipation and confirmation of this result led to sharp appreciation of the Dollar against the Yen, allowing the pair to reach a new cellar at the 114.00 mark.

This advance signified a breakthrough through the upper resistance line of large falling wedge. This fact allows assuming that the buck is going to continue strengthening at least until the clash with the monthly R1 at 114.75.

But in shorter perspective the pair is likely to return back to the 113.35 mark and make a rebound from the bottom edge of a junior ascending channel that will be backed up by the rising 55- and 100-hour SMAs.
