USD/JPY closed higher close on Friday and the high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Monday. Stochastics and the RSI remain neutral to bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. Closes below August's low crossing are needed to renew this year's decline. If it renews the rally off August's low, the 25% retracement level of the April-August decline crossing is the next upside target.
