USD/JPY 1-hourly chart

   •  The momentum lifted the pair to fresh one week high, with bulls eyeing a follow-through move beyond the 109.00 handle amid a modest pickup in the USD demand.

   •  Technical indicators on hourly charts have been gaining traction and support prospects for further up-move, though bearish oscillators on the daily chart might cap gains.

   •  Hence, it would be prudent to wait for a sustained strength above the mentioned handle before confirming a near-term bullish breakthrough a  one-week-old trading range.
