Technical Analysis


Although USD has been relatively weak lately, that had little effect on USD/JPY. From 111.00 at the beginning of October, it has recently reached 114.50.

A complicated economic outlook shared by the Bank of Japan will likely support USD/JPY’s further upward movement. Hence, we expect it to keep moving UP in the future.


This pair was deflected by the resistance of 0.8660 at the beginning of October. Since then, it has only been moving down, and it crossed the support of 0.8460. The means it may keep moving DOWN.


The symmetrical shape of this pair’s movement suggests it may be going UP to reach 0.70 in the future.
