  • USD/JPY has completed a 'Bullish Bat' pattern, scope for further upside seen.
  • US dollar strengthened post FOMC meeting. Fed said they expect economic conditions to evolve in a manner that will warrant further rate hikes.

  • RSI and Stochs have rolled over from oversold territory raising scope for upside.
  • Price action has broken above 5-DMA at 109.00 and is currently hovering around 23.6% Fibo.
  • Next bull target lies at 110.37 (nearly converged 38.2% Fib and 21-EMA) ahead of 20-DMA at 110.56.
  • On the downside we see immediate support at 5-DMA, breach there will see resumption of downside.
  • Focus now on nonfarm payrolls, ISM manufacturing PMI for further impetus.
