  • RES 3: 132.39 High Apr 15 2002
  • RES 2: 131.96 1.00 proj of the Feb 24 - Mar 28 - 31 price swing
  • RES 1: 130.05/131.35 High May 12 / High May 9 and the bull trigger
  • PRICE: 127.49 @ 06:25 BST May 23

  • SUP 2: 126.95 Low Apr 27 and a key support
  • SUP 3: 125.77 50-day EMA
  • SUP 4: 125.09 Low Apr 14

USDJPY traded lower last Thursday. 127.52, the May 12 low has been breached and this exposes the next key short-term support at 126.95, Apr 27 low. The current pullback is likely a correction and this is allowing a recent overbought trend reading to unwind. A break of 126.95 would signal scope for an extension towards the 50-day EMA, at 125.77. A reversal higher and a move above 130.05, May 9 high would be a bullish development.
