FxWirePro: USD/JPY hovers around 23.6% Fib, extends upside in 'Bullish Bat' pattern, stay long

  • USD/JPY extends upside after completing 'Bullish Bat' pattern, bias higher.
     
  • Yen dampened after BOJ's decision to buy more bonds maturing in 5-10 years.
     
  • The major is extending upside for 3rd straight session, is attempting retrace into slopping channel.
     
  • Technical studies are biased higher, RSI and Stochs have rolled over from oversold territory.
     
  • Price action has broken above 5-DMA and 23.6% Fib retrace of 113.572 to 108.282 fall.
     
  • Next bull target lies at 110.37 (nearly converged 38.2% Fib and 20-DMA) ahead of 111 handle.
     
  • On the downside we see immediate support at 5-DMA, breach there will see resumption of downside.
     
  • Focus now on nonfarm payrolls due later in the US session for further impetus.

Support levels - 109.57 (23.6% Fib 113.572 to 108.282 fall), 109.18 (5-DMA), 108.60 (Aug 18 low), 108.26 (Aug 29 low)
