The USD/JPY rallies more than 100 pips and clears the 134.00 mark, breaking north of the 200-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at 133.77, a bullish/bearish bias measure for an asset.

At the time of writing, the USD/JPY exchanges hand at 134.28 after hitting a low of 132.54.

From a daily chart perspective, the USD/JPY shifted upward biased after dropping from last year’s high of 151.94 towards the YTD low of 127.21 on January 16. Nevertheless, the USD/JPY needs to clear the confluence of the 100-day EMA and the YTD high at 134.77 to cement the uptrend.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) and the Rate of Change (RoC) show that buyers are gathering momentum. Hence, the USD/JPY might test the 135.00 psychological level in the near term.
