Japanese Yen: USD/JPY (JPY=X) outlook bullish for stronger gain to 118.59/61 early next week
Pay attention to the stock market, because it will make quite a bit of difference as to where this market goes. Ultimately, this is a market that I think continues to see a lot of noise but clearly if we break down below the ¥107 level, the bottom will fall out and we should continue to go much lower. I think if we do break to the upside, the ¥109 level is probably going to act as a ceiling in the short term, perhaps even longer term, if the economic situation doesn’t improve.
With the world economy stopping, the only thing that’s keeping this pair up is the fact that the US dollar is part of the equation. After all, the US dollar does attract a certain amount of attention due to the fact that there are US treasuries out there waiting to be bought. At this point, I am bearish but probably need to see a short-term bounce or a breakthrough that ¥107 level to get aggressive.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
