CURRENCY INVESTORS Japanese Yen Closed The USDJPY increased 0.1600 or 0.14% to 112.6350 on Monday July 17 from 112.4750 in the previous trading session. Historically, the Japanese Yen reached an all time high of 306.84 in December of 1975 and a record low of 75.74 in October of 2011.
CURRENCY PAIR USD//JPY remains on the downside for 55 day EMA (now at 112.03). The rejection from 114.36 resistance suggests that whole correction from 118.65 is possibly still in progress. Sustained break of 55 day EMA will pave the way to 108.12 and below. On the upside, above 113.57 minor resistance will turn focus back to 114.49 resistance instead.
In the bigger picture, the corrective structure of the fall from 118.65 suggests that rise from 98.97 is not completed yet. Break of 118.65 will target a test on 125.85 high. At this point, it’s uncertain whether rise from 98.97 is resuming the long term up trend from 75.56, or it’s a leg in the consolidation from 125.85. Hence, we’ll be cautious on topping as it approaches 125.85. If fall from 118.65 extends lower, down side should be contained by 61.8% retracement of 98.97 to 118.65 at 106.48 and bring rebound.
