Dollar bulls are taking charge of USD/JPY once again this morning, pushing the price back to the highs of the week.
The USD/JPY made a bearish bounce after reaching the -27.2% Fibonacci target at 113.23 and price is now challenging the support trend line (green). A new bullish breakout could indicate a continuation towards the -61.8% Fibonacci target whereas a bearish push could indicate the end of the bullish wave Y and the start of a bearish price swing.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.
By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 110.60.
The projected upper bound is: 113.62.
The projected lower bound is: 111.40.
The projected closing price is: 112.51.

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 50.2887. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 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 66.48. 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 1 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 59. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 1 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 buy 14 period(s) ago.
