COMMENTARY: Dollar-yen hits another new high yesterday but price action today
lower and already testing the Feb 11 former resistance line, now at 101.94.
Studies are bullish but overbought and we may see a little light consolidation
if the pair breaks below initial support, especially as daily studies suggest
the potential for a reversal. However, if the pair holds above the Feb 11 former
resistance line we expect a test of resistance, initial resistance at 102.43, the May 14 high. resized 600
