The USDJPY outlook is bullish and the pair remains above last Thursday’s low of 127.52. This level represents the first key support. A resumption of gains and a break above 131.35, May 9 high, would clear the path for 131.96, a Fibonacci projection. A move higher would also maintain a bullish price sequence of higher highs and higher lows and confirm a resumption of the downtrend. Key trend support is unchanged at 126.95, Apr 27 low.
