USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Pullback from six-week highs above 112.00 could be short-lived

23
  • USD/JPY's pullback from the six-week high of 112.08 to 111.83 is likely associated with the bearish divergence of the 14-hour relative strength index (RSI), although the short-term outlook still remains bullish, as the 5-day and 10-day moving averages (MAs) are trending north.
  • More importantly, the pair closed yesterday above the crucial resistance of 111.83 (Aug. 29 high), signaling a revival of the rally from the Aug. 21 low of 109.77. As a result, the pair looks set to test the highs above 113.00 in the next couple of weeks.
  • On the downside, a daily close below the 10-day MA would abort the bullish view.
