However, the daily resistance levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be monitored.

On the flip-side, a close below the low end could press the price towards 126.77. Nonetheless, the weekly support vicinity underscored on the chart should be kept in focus.

Looking at the daily chart, we notice yesterday USD/JPY rebounded form the low end of the trading zone 105.50 – 107.30 and currently the pair eyes a test of the high end.

Thus, a close above the high end of this zone could cause a rally towards 108.61. However, the weekly resistance levels marked on the chart (zoomed in) need to be watched along the way.

On the other hand, any close below the low end of the zone may send the price towards 104.77. Although, the weekly support level highlighted on the chart would be worth monitoring.
