Japanese Yen: USD/JPY (JPY=X) bias remains neutral this week for some more consolidation
USD/JPY rebounded further last week but was held below 112.13 resistance. Initial bias remains neutral this week for some more consolidation. But still, as long as 110.35 support hold, near term outlook remains bullish. On the upside, break of 112.13 will resume the rally from 104.69 to 114.54 resistance next. However, firm break of 110.35 should confirm near term reversal and turn outlook bearish for 108.49 support and below.
Shayne Heffernan said “almost nothing can save the Yen, Abenomics has created excessive liquidity and is still failed to stimulate the economy”.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 110.79.
The projected upper bound is: 112.44.
The projected lower bound is: 110.58.
The projected closing price is: 111.51.
