Technical analysis of USD/JPY for January 18, 2018


USD/JPY is expected to trade with a bullish outlook. The pair shows an upward momentum after breaking above the declining trend line since January 15. Both rising 20-period and 50-period moving averages maintain the bullish bias. The relative strength index advocates for a further upside.

Hence, above 110.90, look for a new advance with targets at 111.45 and 111.70 in extension.

Alternatively, if the price moves in the opposite direction, a short position is recommended below 110.90 with a target of 110.50.
