USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Recovery remains capped near 108.00 handle, 50% Fibo. level

   •  The pair recovered some of its early lost ground to over nine-month lows, albeit struggled to make it back above the 108.00 round figure mark.

   •  The mentioned handle coincides with 50% Fibo. level of the 111.41-104.69 post-Christmas downfall and might continue to cap the attempted recovery.

   •  A convincing breakthrough the mentioned glass ceiling will increase prospects for a strong recovery towards the 108.80-85 region (61.8% Fibo. level).

   •  Technical indicators on hourly charts have just started moving away from highly oversold zone but remain well within the bearish territory, warranting some caution.
