USD/JPY: technical analysis 20.12.19

Current trend

USD/JPY quotes attempted to grow, but reaching 109.398 mark moved to a decline. If the sellers manage to decline the rate below the level of 109.270, the price can return to 109.180 support. This level seems an important mark for the sellers. There is a high chance of an upward rebound, while its breakdown would allow the fall to continue to the 108.984 support.

Alternative scenario

The pullback and pair’s sustained trading above the 109.400 resistance will give a prospect of growth to the 109.477 resistance (which is the middle line of Bollinger Bands).
