The USD/JPY pair has held support at 109.50 and bounced back above the 110 level. USD/JPY has broken the bullish channel and is now back testing the breakdown area of 110.40-110.20.
Blue lines – bullish channel
The USD/JPY pair bounced off the lower cloud boundary. Price reached the upper cloud boundary which is short-term resistance. Holding at least inside the cloud is in favor of the bulls. Bears need to break down below the cloud support at 110. A 4-hour close below 110 will be a bearish sign. I remain longer-term bearish about USD/JPY looking for at least a move to 108 if not lower.
