"After topping on May 22 at 103.73, the USDJPY has been following the bearish path of a Rising Wedge, drawn from the April 2 low at 92.55. Similarly, the break below 95.20 last week may have also initiated another bearish pattern, a Broadening Wedge, drawn from the February 25 low at 90.84", says Vecchio.

"Accordingly, a break below 93.75 (last week's low) amid neutral/dovish commentary from the Fed and a sustained high pace of QE3 should prompt the next moves lower to 92.55 then potentially 90.84 over the coming week", he concludes.
