“Technically, resistance levels are seen at 113.38 and 113.64 with substantial support below 113. We see little chance of a substantial break higher in USD/JPY due to very stretched speculative positioning, according to the IMM, and further flattening pressure on the US yield curve. Tactically, we would consider selling USD/JPY on rallies towards 114 for a short-term move down to 111.69 (200 day MA), with a stop at 114.55.”
