USD/JPY: technical analysis 14.01.20

Current trend

On the 4-hour chart, the price has tested the resistance level of 109.941 and was slightly corrected downwards, but the general upward trend still maintains. One may speak about upward movement continuation after the price consolidates above the resistance level of 110.208. In this case, the next targets of buyers will be the level of 110.328-110.547. Judging by the downward reversal of the Stochastic, this scenario seems less likely.

Alternative scenario

The pullback below 109.905 will be a sign of downward correction formation and let the price fall to the 109.766 support level. The further close below this level may push USD/JPY to 109.627 support. This level is coincided with the middle line of Bollinger Bands and will be a key target of the downward correction.

Technical indicators
