FXStreet (Mumbai) - The USD/JPY pair bounced-off its hourly 100-MA seen at 122.72, but the recovery failed to take the pair back above 123.00 levels despite uptick in the Asian stocks.

Stuck between key Fib levels

The pair has been stuck between the key fib levels since last week. The upside has been capped around 123.55 (76.4% of 125.86-116.08), while the losses have been capped around 122.41 (23.6% of 118.06-123.76).

USD/JPY Technical Levels

At 122.87, the immediate resistance is seen at 123.00 handle, above which the pair could target 123.55 (76.4% of 125.86-116.08). On the other hand, a break below 122.41 (23.6% of 118.06-123.76) would expose 122.00 handle.
