USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Continues to find decent support at 100-day SMA

   •  The pair once again managed to find decent support near 100-day SMA and has now recovered early lost ground back closer to over one-month lows, set last Thursday.

USD/JPY daily chart

   •  The pair now seems to have formed a bullish reversal - double bottom pattern on the 1-hourly chart, though bulls might face difficulty in making it through 100-hour SMA.

   •  Mixed technical indicators on hourly/daily charts haven't been supportive of a firm near-term direction and might hold back traders from initiating any aggressive bets. 

   •  Hence, it would be prudent to wait for a convincing breakthrough the 100-hour SMA hurdle or 100-day SMA support before positioning for the next leg of a directional move.
