    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The bullish move in the USD/JPY pair appears to have stalled around 123.55 (76.4% of 125.856-116.08) levels in the US session.

    Six day winning streak

    The pair is up for the sixth consecutive session today as the Yen suffered from a bearish hangover of the strong NFP released on Friday. The pair clocked a high of 12.60, but is struggling now to sustain above 123.55 levels.

    Moreover, the uptick in the USD/JPY led to a 100-pip rally in the EUR/JPY and GBP/JPY; given the EUR/USD and GBP/USD took back a minor part of their Friday’s losses. The attention now shifts to Fed’s Rosengren speech and the sentiment on the Wall Street.

    USD/JPY Technical Levels

    The spot could extend gains to 124.00-124.47 (July 21 high), in case it manages to break convincingly above 123.55 (76.4% of 125.856-116.08). On the other side, a failure to rise above 123.55 would open doors for a re-test of 123.01 (July 27 low) and 122.12 (61.8% of 125.856-116.08).
