-USDJPY has made good upon the ‘trend extension’ setup described last week and traded to a new high.

-A bullish objective of 105.12 is derived by calculating the measured move from the 103.37-101.61 dip. A close from Oct 2008 remains uncovered at 105.30. The trendline that extends off of the 1998 and 2007 highs is at about 106.80.
