USD/JPY closed higher on Thursday as it extends the rally off last week's low. The high-range close sets the stage for a steady to higher opening on Friday. Stochastics and the RSI remain bullish signalling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If it extends the rally off last week's low, the January-February downtrend line crossing near is the next upside target. Closes below the 10-day moving average crossing would signal that a long-term high has been posted.
