  • USD/JPY changes hands at Y108.92, little changed on the day as we type. May 7 low of Y108.34 provides the initial bullish target. A break under this key near-term support would bring Apr 23 low of Y107.48 into play. Conversely, a jump above May 13 high of Y109.79 would expose Apr 9 high of Y109.96.
