On the 1 hour quotes are testing the lower limit of the upward channel, while on the 3 hour chart the upward channel has slowed down. Break above yesterday's top and nearest resistance 84.37 would encourage further recovery of the Dollar. Immediate support is yesterday's bottom at 83.47, and consistent break bellow it could strengthen the Yen further down towards next target 82.61. There are no major economic events for Japan today. Quotes are moving bellow the 20 and 50 EMA on the 1 hour chart, indicating bearish pressure.
