Japanese Yen: USD/JPY (JPY=X) follows the rules
USD/JPY could be executing a classic bounce off a rising trendline, finding support around ¥111.60, where the trendline from the March lows comes into play.
We have yet to see a new higher high intraday however, so a move above ¥112.50 is needed to suggest bullish momentum has the upper hand. Despite this, risk-reward may now favour the bulls, with a view to seeing the current rising trend continue.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
The projected upper bound is: 113.44.
The projected lower bound is: 111.13.
The projected closing price is: 112.29.

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.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 32.9520. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 1 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 47.12. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 9 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -72. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 0 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 6 period(s) ago.
