USD/JPY Japan industrial production data yet to release today. Ahead of the data release, the yen is trading lower against the euro at the Asian session. The price is consolidating at a 8-year high. Today, the pair has opened on a bullish note. Intraday support was found at 121.20 and 121.00. We still opt to recommend buying on every dip. Now, we are revising the targets at 124, 125.00, and 125.75. The prices are making higher lows and higher highs on the h4 chart. Support has climbed from 119.80 to 121.00. It's a good sign for further room on the upswing. If the price closes above 121.85 on a weekly basis, we can see 128.00 as well. It's a one side move all the way to new highs. Another upswing looms above 122.0 with targets 123.00 and 123.20 in a day or two. Later, 124.00 and 125.00 are expected. Until a h4 candle closes above 120.80, a long trade remains in play.
