USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Pushes through 100-hour SMA and retakes 113.00 mark

   •  The pair once again managed to find decent support near 100-day SMA, forming a bullish reversal double-bottom pattern on short-term charts.

   •  A convincing breakthrough 100-hour SMA was further seen as a key trigger for bullish traders and behind a sudden pickup over the past hour or so.

   •  Technical indicators on the 1-hourly chart have been gaining traction and support prospects for an extension of the strong intraday positive momentum. 

   •  Meanwhile, oscillators on 4-hourly/daily chart are yet to catch up with the recovery move and warrant some caution before initiating fresh bullish positions.

   •  Hence, it would be prudent to wait for a sustained move beyond the 113.15-20 supply zone before confirming that the pair might have already bottomed out.
