USD/JPY Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 110.90; (P) 111.07; (R1) 111.30; More…

USD/JPY is still staying in range of 110.37/111.82. Intraday bias remains neutral at this point. On the upside, break of 111.73 minor resistance will extend the rebound from 109.76. In that case, intraday bias will be turned back to the upside for retesting 113.17 high. Decisive break there will resume larger rally from 104.62. On the downside, below 110.37 will bring deeper fall. But strong support is expected from 38.2% retracement of 104.62 to 113.17 at 109.90 to contain downside and bring rebound.

In the bigger picture, corrective fall from 118.65 (2016 high) should have completed with three waves down to 104.62. Decisive break of 114.73 resistance will likely resume whole rally from 98.97 (2016 low) to 100% projection of 98.97 to 118.65 from 104.62 at 124.30, which is reasonably close to 125.85 (2015 high). This will stay as the preferred case as long as 109.36 support holds. However, decisive break of 109.36 will mix up the outlook again. And deeper fall should be seen back to 61.8% retracement of 104.62 to 113.17 at 107.88 and below.
