USD/JPY (a 4-hour chart)

General overview

During the day we expect the moderately upward trend and demand for the US stock market which will encourage bulls to long. The day before we had observed a modest correction after Friday's quotations strong rise and taking into account the fact that the Nasdaq showed the smallest decline - we can expect demand for the risky assets.

The price is finding the first support at 119.20, the next one is at 118.30. The price is finding the first resistance at 120.40, the next one is at 121.60.

There is a confirmed and a weak buy signal. The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is correcting.

Trading recommendations

The pair can grow to the resistance level of 120.40. After breaking 120.40 the buyers may go to 121.60.
