3/30/2010 - USD/JPY - Price action on USD/JPY, a daily chart of which is shown, has consolidated for the last several days after having made a strong bullish breakout move last week. This consolidation range occurs in the price zone between 92.00 and 93.00. A breakout to the upside above this range would lend additional strength to a potential bullish reversal of the long-term downtrend that had been in place until last week's breakout above the longstanding downtrend resistance line (extending from the April 2009 high). In the event of this range breakout, immediate upside resistance resides around the 93.75 price region, with further key resistance around 95.75.
