The indicators do not provide precise signals, the price has fixed between 50 MA and 200 MA.

The MACD histogram is in the positive zone but below the signal line, which gives a weak signal to buy USD/JPY.

Trading recommendations

  • Support levels: 110.750, 110.150
  • Resistance levels: 111.400, 111.900, 112.250

If the price fixes above the resistance level of 111.400, expect further growth of the USD/JPY quotes toward 111.900-112.250.

Alternatively the quotes can descend toward 110.250-110.100.
