USD/JPY Remains Supported by MAs After BOJ Kuroda Comments

USD/JPY used to be bearish last year, as the USD was declining, but the JPY gained less against the USD, compared to other major currencies, which was a sign of weakness. This year the situation reversed and this pair climbed more than 8 cents from the bottom and the moving averages turned into support.
First the 50 SMA (yellow) on the daily chart and now the 20 SMA (gray) has caught up with the price, adding further strength to the support. The Bank of Japan governor Kuroda sounded optimistic a while ago, but the JPY still remains bearish and the USD/JPY remains supported by these two moving averages, so the next move here should be up. We might try to open a buy forex signal, with a stop below the MAs.
