USDJPY rallied Tuesday, breaking 107.77, May 11 high. Furthermore, the pair also
tested and briefly probed the more important hurdle at 108.08, Apr 16 and 17
high. A clear break of 108.08 is required to signal a reversal. This would open
108.54, Apr 13 high and potentially 109.38, Apr 6 high further out. Key support
has been defined at 106.74, May 13 low. An inability to hold onto current highs
followed by a break of 106.74 would resume a bearish focus.
