Re-test of bullish 5-day EMA support likely


  • The USD/JPY is currently trading at 113.92, down 0.12 percent on the day, and could drop further to the 5-day exponential moving average (EMA) of 113.65 as the indicators on the hourly chart have rolled over in favor of the bears.
  • For instance, the hourly chart RSI is flashing a bearish divergence and has eroded the rising trendline. The stochastic has rolled over from the overbought territory and the MACD is producing a bearish crossover.
  • The pullbacks, however, could be short-lived as the pair closed yesterday above the previous day’s high of 113.82, bolstering the already bullish setup on the daily chart:  higher lows and higher highs and ascending 5-, 10-, 50-day EMAs.
