    USD/JPY chart on Trading View used for analysis

    • USD/JPY is currently trading 0.22% higher on the day at 110.60 at 0415 GMT.
       
    • The pair largely ignores Bank of Japan's decision to cut bond purchases. The news fails to halt USD/JPY rally.
       
    • BOJ trimmed purchases of long duration bonds for the first time since June 2018.
       
    • The pair is extending gains for the 2nd straight session and has broken above 55-EMA.
       
    • Technical studies support upside. RSI is above 50 and biased higher. Stochs are bullish and MACD supports upside.
       
    • Immediate resistance is seen at 110-EMA at 110.94. Break above targets 200-DMA at 111.26.
       
    • On the flipside, 21-EMA is strong support. Break below will negate any bullish bias.

    Support levels - 110.41 (55-EMA), 110.09 (5-DMA), 109.77 (21-EMA)

    Resistance levels - 110.77 (61.8% Fib), 110.94 (110-EMA), 111.26 (200-DMA)

    Recommendation: Good to go long on dips around 110.50, SL: 110, TP: 110.80/ 111/ 111.25
