Short term we could see the pair indicator point higher after Usd/Jpy bounce off the support zone around 112.00.

The bottom of the day was scored at 113.11.
USD/JPY is flat and the short term outlook remains neutral to bearish. Indicators on the H4 chart has lost directional strength, although the price is moving above its 100-day and 200-day SMAs, but both meanwhile are limiting the risk of a bearish development.
The pair is consolidating in the negative territory, further downside extension can be expected if usd/jpy breaks below 112.45.
USD/JPY jupmed to 112.50 after the upbeat US macro data, but retreated to currently trade at 112.30. All eyes on FOMC minutes, that might boost the pair.

Daytime extreme values ??were reached at 112.46 and 112.85, respectively. In the short term, a break in the 100-year moving average will contribute to a positive mood, with 112.90 being an immediate goal.
Key levels to watch for:
Resistance: 112.90; 114.30; 115.40;
If this break on the trend line holds, I believe this will continue down. I’m just waiting for the swing back and retest on the trend line to have confirmation. My target area would be the 112.73 area right at the 161.8 and also has a lot of support and resistance there. But this is my opinion only.
Interesting movement on the pair.
