Key quotes


"This leaves the spotlight on the 104.13 April high. Whilst a fresh setback from here should be allowed for, an eventual break is expected for a retest of the 105.48/60 highs, CS projects."

"Near-term support moves to 103.67, below which can see a pullback to 103.42, potentially as far as 103.09/03, where fresh buying would be expected to show, CS adds."

"CS booked profit on its latest USD/JPY position at 103.05 and reinstated long above there targeting 105.25, with a stop at 102.42."
