USD/JPY Technical Analysis

Coming into today USD/JPY is now close to its 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 108.8933, 109.0563 and 108.3944 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 100 day average, which is 185.2 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. Also of note is that on a 30 day basis price appears to be forming a base — which could the stage for it being a support/resistance level going forward. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days USD/JPY’s price has gone up 9 them.
