. USD/JPY - 102.20... Dlr remained under pressure initially last week n retreated fm 101.94 to 101.27 on Tue due to safe-haven buying of yen following the annexation of Crimea by Russia, however, price rallied to 102.69 Wed after Fed's tapering move n hawkish remarks fm Fed chief Yellen b4 dropping back to 102.01.

. Looking at the bigger picture, dlr's nr term rise fm 101.21 (Mar 14 low)
to 102.69 signals the fall fm Mar's peak at 103.77 has ended there earlier n as daily technical indicators are turning up, suggesting further 'volatile' trading abv Feb's bottom at 100.76 wud be seen n with upside bias. Looking ahead, a daily close abv 103.10 (Mar 12 high) wud encourage for a re-test of 103.77 later this month, however, only a firm breach there wud indicate decline fm 105.45 (2013 5-year peak made in Dec) is still being retraced n bring another leg of correction fm 100.76 twd 104.22, bring the equality projection of 100.76-103.77 measured fm 102.21, n then twd 104.50/60.

. Today, as long as 102.01 (reaction low fm 102.69) holds, buying dlr on
dips in anticipation of a re-test of 102.69 is favoured, abv, 103.00/10. Only
below 101.94 (prev. res) wud abort this bullish scenario, risk 101.77, 101.49.
