The dollar / yen tried to lower yesterday, forming a bottom at 111.98, but closed slightly higher at 112.44. The signals are neutral so far, but the price is still in the bears phase after the downward pin bar formation at the key resistance of 113.20. Immediate support is seen at 111.65. A clear breakthrough and daily closure below this level will open the doors to 111.00 - 110.65.
The dollar / yen did not make a substantial move yesterday. There is no change in my technical predictions. Expectations remain neutral in the short term, but the price is still in the downstream phase after the formation of the bearish pin bar at the key resistance 113.20. Support for the day we have at 111.65. A clear breakthrough and daily closure below it will clear the way down to 111.00 - 110.65. Generally I remain neutral.
