USD/JPY: technical analysis 20.02.20

Current trend

USD/JPY is in the stage of a downward correction after growing to the level of 111.584, but the general upward trend is still maintained. The pullback above 111.486 resistance will let the price re-test the yesterday' high surrounding 111.584 level. The breakout of this level will be a key trigger for bullish traders and give a prospect of growth to 111.719-112.109.

If the "bears" manage to decline the rate below the level of 111.106, the correction can continue to the area of 110.938-110.742.
