The USD/JPY pair rose by a symbolic three points on Thursday. The reason was the growth of the stock market (S&P 500 +0.45%). Asian markets are experiencing moderate growth today: the Nikkei 225 0.23%, S&P/ASX 200 0.25%, Shanghai Composite 1.03%. The US market is closed today due to a national holiday.
Yesterday's growth did not exceed the resistance of the balance indicator line (red) on the daily scale chart, and the price is consolidating under it. The signal line of the Marlin oscillator moves strictly along the border separating the growth and decline zones.
The price is above the balance line, but the Marlin line is in the negative zone on the four-hour chart. As a result, according to the situation on both scales, the USD/JPY pair is in a neutral position, which can only be broken next week. The potential of the subsequent movement is decreasing, the goal of 107.05/08 is the area of support for the MACD lines on both charts that are under consideration.
