FxWirePro: USD/JPY closes above 50-DMA at 112.82, bias higher, stay long

  • USD/JPY is trading at 113.31, up 0.21% on the day, having posted a daily high at 113.38 and low at 113.07.
     
  • Legislation to extend funding for the U.S. government through Dec. 22 has cleared a procedural hurdle in the House of Representatives on Thursday.
     
  • Diminishing risks of the possibility of a government shutdown are boosting the US Dollar higher.
     
  • Technical studies are biased higher, RSI points north and is gaining traction above 50 levels.
     
  • Stochs are sharply higher and MACD is showing a bullish crossover on signal line.
     
  • Focus on the nonfarm payrolls due later today in the NY session. A bullish outcome could support optimism around the economy, and we could see upside accentuate. 

Support levels - 112.98 (23.6% Fib of 107.318 to 114.737 rally), 112.83 (50-DMA), 112.73 (5-DMA)
