USDJPY traded stronger through the Thursday close, keeping support at last Tuesday’s low of 147.43 intact. The recovery from this level last week is bullish and - for now - the uptrend remains in play. A clear break of the 150.00 handle would reinforce bullish conditions. The bull trigger is 150.16, the Oct 3 high and a break would open 150.40, a Fibonacci projection. On the downside, clearance of 147.43 would be a bearish development and signal scope for a deeper retracement.
