USDJPY held on to the week’s gains into the close and potential is seen for a continuation higher. Price remains above the 50-day EMA, at 126.49 today. This week’s move higher signals the end of a recent corrective pullback and highlights the point that corrections in USDJPY are shallow - a bullish signal. The move higher signals scope for a climb towards the bull trigger at 131.35, May 9 high. Key short-term support has been defined at 126.36.
