BUY 111.00; TP1 111.30; TP2 111.55; SL 110.90

Volatility has greatly diminished in USD/JPY. The pair is consolidating in a narrow range on H4, and a breakout is coming. The US economic data due later today may act as a trigger. The overall trend is to the upside, but the pair is trading in the middle of the bigger range and may correct to the downside. As a result, both scenarios have almost equal probability.
Notice that on the upside, resistance is provided by the 200-day MA (111.30) and 110-day MA (111.55), while the 50-day MA acts as support (110.10).
