23 April, GKFX – The USD/JPY has been climbing steadily since reaching a bottom in late March near 104.60, and the Greenback continues to climb against the safe-haven Yen as Treasury yields continue to lift and a semblance of market risk appetite returns to markets.

23 April USDJPY Fundamental Outlook

USD/JPY bulls are looking eager to be let off the chain after setting a new high for April on Friday, and the outlook is turning increasingly bullish as noted by FXStreet’s own Valeria Bednarik:

“the daily chart for the pair shows that it posted its highest settlement since mid-February and that it remains above a daily ascendant trend line coming from early April low. However, the 100 DMA maintains a sharp bearish slope above the current level, offering a dynamic resistance around 108.30.

The Momentum indicator in the mentioned chart heads nowhere above within positive territory, but the RSI maintains a bullish slope around 59, supporting additional gains ahead. Shorter term, and according to the 4 hours chart, the pair presents a neutral-to-bullish stance, holding above moving averages that lack directional strength, as technical indicators hover inside positive territory, but also without clear directional strength.”

Support levels: 107.45 107.10 106.80

Resistance levels: 107.85 108.30 108.60
