USD/JPY - 111.92
Although dollar's retreat after yesterday's 1-tick break of Friday's high at 112.09 suggests consolidation is in store before a re-test of March's 10-week peak at 112.14 is forthcoming and a break there would extend upmove from January's 9-month trough at 104.79 towards 112.35 later, loss of momentum would prevent sharp move beyond there and risk would increase for a much-needed correction.

On the downside, only below 111.28 would indicate a temporary top has been made and risk stronger retracement to 110.83 later this week.
