USD/JPY: technical analysis 03.06.20

Current trend

USD/JPY quotes attempted to continue the upward dynamic, but reaching 108.844 mark moved to a downward correction. At the moment the price has met the support at the level of 108.419. The breakdown of this level will give a prospect of decline to the area of 108.203-108.008 support area. Judging by the downward reversal of the Stochastic this case scenario is possible soon.

Alternative scenario

The upward rebound from 108.419 and pullback above 108.594 will let the price grow to the area of 108.789 resistance.
