USD/JPY - 90.30 ... Despite dlr's initial brief drop to 88.43, renewed buying there lifted the pair n intra-day upmove gathered momentum after the yen-negative comments fm Japan's Deputy EconMin Nishimura. Price subsequently rallied to a fresh 30-month high of 90.56 near New York close.

Y'day's spectacular rally (213 points) confirms MT uptrend fm 2011 Oct's record low of 75.32 has once again resumed n further gain to 90.92, being 1.618 times ext. of 77.13-82.84 fm 81.68, is likely, however, the very high readings on both daily n hourly oscillators shud prevent strg gain abv there today n reckon 91.47 (1.618 time extension of 75.32-84.18 measured fm 77.13) wud cap upside n yield a much-needed minor correction later. Looking ahead, as the aforesaid MT uptrend is retracing the intermediate LT decline fm 110.67, further gain to 93.00 (natural 50% r of 110.67-75.32) is likely in Q1.

Today, buying dlr on intra-day pullback in anticipation of further rise is the way to go, however, profit shud be taken on next move n one may look to buy dlr again next week on subsequent retreat as 89.45 is expected to remain intact.
