The US dollar traded lower initially this week against the Japanese yen and tested the 119.00 level, but there was a sharp reaction noted around the mentioned level. The USDJPY pair blasted higher one more time, and gained momentum. It broke an important bearish trend line on the 4-hour chart of the USDJPY pair, which has increased the chances of more gains in the near term. Currently, the pair is consolidating around the 100 and 200 simple moving averages, which presents us an opportunity to buy USDJPY. A break above the 120.40 level might ignite more gains in the short term.
Intraday Support Level – 119.60
Intraday Resistance Level – 120.40
Overall, as long as the pair is above the 100 SMA it might continue trading higher.
A break below the same could ignite more losses moving ahead.
If the USDJPY pair moves lower from the current levels, then the 100 SMA (4H) could be tested again.
The Euro was one of the worst performers against the Japanese yen as it was seen trading lower. It also breached a critical support trend line on the 4-hour chart to clear the way for more losses in the near term. The most bearish sign to note is the fact that the pair is trading below the 100 and 200 simple moving averages.
Intraday Support Level – 128.50
Intraday Resistance Level – 129.40
Selling rallies around the 100 SMA (4H) looks like a good option.
A break above the same might call for more gains moving ahead.
If the EURJPY pair moves lower, then a break below the 61.8% fib level of the last leg at 128.70 could ignite a sharp decline moving ahead.
