USDJPY trades to new session highs and test 112.00
Cracked above the April high and stayed above
The USDJPY cracked above the April 5 high at 111.818 and stayed above today. It wasn't without first testing it in the Asian session first. That increases that levels importance. Stay above and the bulls remain in control. PS the low today based at another key swing level at 111.572.
Looking at the daily chart below, the pair is approaching the 112.00 area and also swing levels going back to November, December and March starting at the 112.07 to 112.279 area (see yellow area in chart below). The high price in March reached 112.13. The 112.07-13 is target one and then 112.28 on a break of that level.
Close risk has to be the 111.79-111.81 level (from the hourly - give a few pips). Stay above, keeps the buyers in control. Move below and the break to new highs, loses some of its followers.
