    • USD/JPY has shown a minor recovery of more than 100 pips from low of 109.91.. The pair hits high of 110.90 and is currently trading around 110.43.    
    • On the lower side, index major support is around 22580 (20- day MA) and any break below will drag the index down till 22480 (daily Kijun-Sen) /22380 (55- day EMA)/22137 (100- day MA)/21957 (200- day MA).
    • The near term resistance is around 23050 and any convincing break above will take the index to next level till 23290/23500.
