FxWirePro: USD/JPY holds above 112 handle, greenback recovers on rebound in US Treasury yields

  • USD/JPY downside held above 112 handle overnight, is currently trading at 112.27 levels.
     
  • The pair has formed a Doji pattern on daily charts, recovery lacks traction, upside capped below 5-DMA.
     
  • The pair has hit fresh 2-week lows at 112.05, broken below 200W SMA at 112.38, bias remains bearish.
     
  • Immediate support seen at 100-DMA at 112.02, break below will accentuate weakness.
     
  • Violation at 100-DMA raises scope for test of 200-DMA at 111.65.
     
  • Focus now on FOMC meeting minutes and the keenly watched NFP data due this week for further impetus.

Support levels - 112.02 (100-DMA), 111.90 (38.2% Fib retrace of 107.318 to 114.737), 111.65 (200-DMA)
