USD/JPY (a 4-hour chart)

General Overview

The yen is rising in price against all 16 key currencies amid falling stock market indices in developing countries, stimulating demand for safe-haven assets. Emerging-market currencies also fell significantly amid growing investor confidence in the fact that America's economy is strong enough to start rolling incentives.

The pair was likely to trade in the 98.00-99.00 range due to the lack of new landmarks. If the tension associated with Syria worsen, the pair may fall.

Trading recommendations

We can see a formation of the ascending channel to the lower base of which the price may go today. The crosshair of the 97.65 support level and a rising trend line is a strong obstacle. It is possible that the approach to this level will be followed by a rebound up to 98.40 resistance level.
