USD/JPY: bulls looking for 120.88 again?

FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/JPY is currently trading at 119.89 with a high of 119.97 and a low of 119.40.

USD/JPY bulls have stepped up as the week gets going. The price is now through the 200 SMA that currently resides at 119.55 and bulls are looking for a core onto the 120 handle here. Fundamentally, there is little to report other than housing starts 1.206m vs 1.150m expected. We are still tracking familiar movement in the price and the breakout to the downside looks well and truly done.
