USDJPY maintains a bullish outlook. The pair rallied last week from what is now a firm support at 108.34, May 7 low. This maintains the focus on 109.96, Apr 9 high with potential for a climb above 110.00 too. Note that the recovery last week also means trendline support drawn off the Jan 6 low remains intact. A break of 108.34 would threaten the uptrend and also signal a break of the trendline.
