USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Greenback regains daily highs, USD/JPY back above 110.30 level

  • USD/JPY regained the losses made earlier in Asia as it is now trading above the 110.23-110.28 area which is last week's high, the weekly 50-period simple moving average (SMA) and the daily 200-period SMA. 
  • USD/JPY is evolving in a rising wedge on the 4-hour time-frame and a breakout above 110.30 should lead to a retest close to the current weekly high in the 110.80 area.
