USD/JPY Analysis

I wrote yesterday that the price was bunching just underneath the flipped support to resistance at 110.58 which looked weak. The price was eventually able to rise above that level and in recent hours also appears to have broken above the former resistance level at 110.76. These are all weakly bullish signs and it may be that we get a strong move in this pair when the U.S. returns from holiday later today. The line of resistance certainly appears to be bullish, so I would watch out for an upwards movement with some resistance possible at 111.10 and then again at 111.46. I would take a bullish bias if the price can spend a couple of hours making new highs in the early part of the New York session.

USDJPY

There is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the JPY or the USD.
