USD/JPY technical outlook

Ahead of the Wall Street closing bell, the 1-hour chart shows indicators losing upward potential, with moving averages heading higher below current price, notes Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at FXStreet.

“In the 4 hours chart higher highs support the ongoing bias, despite indicators also turned lower in positive territory: dips down to 108.90 will remain as buying opportunities, at least until Friday’s US NFP readings”, said Bednarik.
