FXstreet.com (Córdoba) - The USD/JPY is extending its downward correction into a second day Wednesday amid profit taking after the pair struck a 6-month high of 103.40 the previous day.

USD/JPY finds resistance at 103.40

The USD/JPY came under mild pressure after failing to break above 103.40 for a second time in December and it has been slowly retracing gains, having broken below the 200-hour SMA and the 102.50 zone to hit a weekly low of 102.40 in recent dealings. The USD failed to benefit from a 2-year budget deal in the US Congress, which would reduce the federal deficit by $23 billion.
