USD/JPY (a 4-hour chart)
The "bulls" will try to take a strong resistance at 99.00 before the USA statistics. It should also be recalled that at that level a medium-term resistance line is located. Therefore, the "bulls" need a lot of strength to get through the barriers. Should the price break 99.00 barrier the road to 100.00 and above will be open. In the reverse scenario we can expect a decrease to the mark 98.00.
There is a strong and confirmed buy signal, as the chart is consolidated below Chinkou span, and the Ichimoku cloud is below the price. Tenkan-sen and Kijun-sen are directed upwards. Chinkou Span is below the price, the cloud is growing. Tenkan-Sen and Kijun-sen are directed upwards.
