On USDJPY, after a G7-fueled sharp drop from 2.5 highs around 94.30 until 92.94, long players came back to the market making a half-hearted corrective attempt only bringing the price toward 93.60 - the 50% fib retrac from the 3-hour US drop - before Asian players stepped in to send the rate as low as 92.80 following consistent selling. Resistance is now expected at 92.95/93.00.

According to Sean Lee, founder at FXWW, "USDJPY is back below 93.00 and bank dealers are saying that selling by Asia-based players is the primary factor at play today. Bids are expected to be solid 92.00/20 from Japanese corporates unwinding hedges."
