The currency couple appreciated from 76.30 to 77.48 yesterday, closing the day at 77.24. This morning the Dollar is trading quietly against the Yen, moving within yesterday's range for now. On the 1 hour chart the small angle upward channel has renewed, while on the 3 hour chart quotes are still caught in narrow range. Break above yesterday's top and nearest resistance 77.48 would encourage further recovery of the Dollar. Immediate support is yesterday's bottom at 76.30, and consistent break bellow it could strengthen the Yen further down towards next target 75.43.
