USD/JPY: In early stages of a recovery targeting 106 – UOB


UOB sees strong support at 102.50

UOB Research discusses USD/JPY technical outlook and adopts a tactical bullish bias in the near-term. 

“USD/JPY dropped to a low of 102.57 last week before staging a swift
and robust rebound. The rebound cracked the declining trend-line
resistance and weekly MACD has turned positive for the first time since
June 2020. The price actions suggest that the current movement
is the early stages of a recovery phase that could extend to the 55-week
exponential moving average at 106.00
. This level is also close to the high in October last year,” UOB notes. 

“While the risk is on the upside for the next one month or so,
it is too early to tell if USD/JPY can move above 106.00 in a sustained
manner. On the downside, support is at 103.50 followed by the still
rather strong level at 102.50,” UOB adds.
