USDJPY rejected at the peak from 3rd October where market went crazy forming this tall candle marking a range that USDJPY needs to break for direction. 150.15 to the upside and 147.30 to the downside.

However, if USDJPY is breaking below its rising trendline since the forming of the candle it could be an indication of USDJPY testing the lower band of the range.

A close above 150.15 is likely to see USDJPY shooting up to 2022 peak at around 152.

RSI has been showing divergence (i.e., imbalance where the strength indicating is declining when instrument is making new higher highs) for the past couple of months indicating weakening of the bullish trend. A correction is needed.

If USDJPY is breaking below the rising trend line the lower band of the range at 147.30 is likely to be tested.

However, if USDJPY breaks higher closing above 150.15 that divergence is likely to be cancelled paving the road to 152

The RSI has broken above its falling trendline and above 60 threshold i.e., now showing positive sentiment indicating EURJPY is likely to break higher

If EURJPY is sliding back below 156.75 support at around 155.52 is likely to come under pressure

AUDJPY got rejected once again the 95.85 resistance level. But with the higher lows as indicated by the lower rising trendline AUDJPY is likely to have yet another go at the 95.85
RSI is in positive sentiment supporting the view of AUDJPY is likely to break higher.

A close above 95.85 next resistance is at around 96.82 – where it actually shot up to last time it broke above 95.85 - and 98.55.
If AUDJPY is breaking below its lower rising trendline a bearish move to the support at around 93.55 and even 92.80 could be seen

GBPJPY is caught range bound between 179.80 and 183.90. Break out needed for direction.
A break above 184 is likely to fuel a rally to August peak around 186.75 possibly shooting higher to 188.82 level

A bearish break out could see GBPJPY collapsing to 176.25

CHFJPY broke above resistance at around 166.58 a few days ago. It could very well test the 166.58 level from the upper side before moving higher.
RSI is supporting higher CHFJPY levels. A bullish move to the 1.618 projection at 170.72 is in the cards.

To demolish the bullish trend a close below 163.80
