The USD/JPY was little changed on Friday, despite the US non-farm payrolls release. USDJPY did well to trade off the support area at 105.19-107.54. The only problem now, is the nearby weekly trendline support-turned resistance etched from the low 98.78.
USDJPY overall momentum is ascending and current momentum is looking to change from descending to ascending. On the weekly timeframe we closed with a bullish inside bar and on the 4HR chart a close above the daily trendline resistance level which could signal some bullish action this week for this pair.
