- USD/JPY main bull trend is taking a breather since mid-July as the market has entered a trading range.
- USD/JPY bulls are trying to break above the bear trendline from July 17 but they will also have to break above the 112.00-112.17 zone (figure and August 1, swing high) if they wish to resume the bull trend. The RSI, MACD and Stochastics indicators remain constructive to the upside.
- However, the 50, 100 and 200-period simple moving averages are flat suggesting that there is not yet convincing momentum in the market.
