USDJPY Analysis: Stranded in channel

On Monday, the US Dollar remained in a relatively constant range, even despite the massive leap mid-session. This situation changed this morning when the American currency fell down to the 112.10 mark. This momentum downwards could continue in the upcoming hours and therefore move the rate closer to the weekly S1 at 111.70. The given support, however, is very strong, reinforced by the 55-, 100– and 200-day SMAs apparent on the daily chart. Only substantial bearish sentiment may dash through this area. Thus, it is more likely that a reversal to the upside could occur there. In the meantime, another scenario may set the pair for a reversal near 112.00, thus establishing the upper channel boundary in the 112.20/50 territory as a possible trading range until Wednesday morning.
