USD/JPY Technical Analysis- Prices advanced as expected after putting in a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. Buyers are now testing key resistance at a falling trend line set from the late May swing high, a barrier reinforced by the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 96.70. A break above that exposes the 50% Fib at 100.22. Near-term support is in the 96.70-82 area, marked by the March 12 high and the 23.6% Fib.
