USD/JPY: intraday opportunities
Information is not investment advice
USD/JPY has been slowly moving higher during the recent days and approached September highs in the 108.47 area. There are bullish signs on the chart: positive end of the last month, the bullish cross of the 50- and 100-period MAs on H4, bullish breakouts of 108.00 and 108.20. The series of higher highs gives bulls a chance of more upside. The break above 108.50 will be able to bring the pair to 109.00. Much will depend on American ISM Manufacturing PMI due at 17:00 MT time and the speeches of the Fed members. All in all, the technical outlook will worsen only is USD/JPY falls back below 108.00 and 107.78 (100-day MA).
Last year was tough for the Japanese yen. USDJPY gained more than 30% over 2022, striking above 150 in October. While anticipation of slower Fed rate hikes pulled the pair below the 130 level at the start of 2023, the speculations over the destiny of BOJ’s yield control policy grabbed the attention of the Japanese assets in the middle of January. What lies ahead for traders of the Japanese yen?
