The dollar rose against the yen

21 February, 2017

The dollar rose against the yen on Monday. Donald Trump’s financial stimulus hasn’t come true yet. The current uncertainty over Trump’s plans weighs on the US dollar. Meanwhile, the yen weakened following the downbeat Foreign trade and Export reports.

Current situation

The dollar strengthened vs. the yen, pushing the USD/JPY pair back above 113.00 handle on Monday. The pair caught fresh bids and reversed majority of Friday's losses in the Asian session. Traders were able to push the price above 113.00 where their advance slowed down. The price was stopped by the 100-EMA in the 4 hours chart. The 50-EMA crossed the 100-EMA upwards. The 100 and the 200-EMAs pointed lower while the 50-EMA maintained its bullish slope. The resistance is highlighted at 114.00, the support comes in at 113.00.

MACD remained at the same level which confirms the strength of sellers. RSI was neutral.

Trading recommendations

If bulls control the market, the USD/JPY pair may try to reach 114.00 after breaking 113.40. Conversely, a break below 113.00 will open room for further downside towards 112.55.
