USD/JPY Analysis

The move down is very strong and is not even holding within a channel formation. We recently passed the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the upwards move at 101.20, after having retested the broken bullish trend line and falling through resistance at 101.63 quite easily:

USDJPY Signal 2414

Although the overall picture seems bearish with the strong downwards move and the anti-risk fearful market sentiment that has led to a strengthening of the JPY across the board, we are approaching a supportive area and the decline should start to taper off.

There are no good resistant levels within range of the current price. Below us at 99.80 is level which is likely to be very supportive, particularly due to its confluence with the key psychological level of 100.00.

There is no important news due today for the JPY or the USD, so today this pair might be quieter than it has been for a while.
