Trading recommendations

The growth of the U.S. dollar versus the Japanese yen was not supported by volumes. However, the downward correction to the trend line took place at the even smaller volumes. Consequently, the probability of bounce up is very high. The resistance level 100.40 should be considered as the potential target to rebound.
