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).
