USDJPY Analysis – May 17, 2008

USDJPY is forming a sideways consolidation in range between 102.58 and 105.70. Near term support is at the price channel and followed by 102.58. As long as 102.58 support holds, we’d expect up trend to resume and further rise to 108.00 area to reach the next cycle top on daily chart is still possible after consolidation.

For long term analysis, USDJPY broke below the long term support at 101.65 (Jan 2005 low). Further fall to 90.00 area to reach the next cycle bottom on weekly chart is in favor.
