FXStreet (Córdoba) - After bottoming at 106.79, the lowest price since last Thursday USD/JPY bounced and rose back above 107.00. The recovery from the lows found resistance at 107.20, and near the end of the day trades at 107.15, around the same price it closed yesterday.

From a technical perspective, Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at FXStreet notes that the hourly chart shows little downward strength “as the pair remains limited in a tight range, with price hovering around its 100 SMA and indicators still in neutral territory.”

“The pair needs to shows some more directional momentum either below 106.80 or above 107.40 to set a clearer directional strength over the upcoming sessions”, affirms Bednarik.
