USDJPY Forex Price Trade Opened decreased 0.8350 or 0.75% to 109.8850 on Friday August 4 from 110.7200 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
USD/JPY’s consolidation from 109.91 is still in progress and intraday bias stays neutral at this point. As long as 112.18 remains intact, outlook stays bearish for deeper fall. Below 109.91 will target 108.81 support first. Break there will resume whole correction from 118.65 and target 61.8% retracement of 98.97 to 118.65 at 106.48. Nonetheless, break of 112.18 resistance will dampen our bearish view and 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. .
