On the 1 hour chart quotes have returned into the trading range, while on the 3 hour chart the upward channel is still on hold. Break above today's top and nearest resistance 83.30 would encourage further recovery of the Dollar. Immediate support is Friday's bottom at 81.82, and consistent break bellow it could strengthen the Yen further down towards next target 81.00.
