USD/JPY technical outlook



“In the 4 hours chart indicators stand in positive territory but turning lower, while moving averages maintain a bearish slope albeit below current price”, says Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at FXStreet.



Risk to the downside will likely increase on a break below 101.60 notes Bednarik, but warns that “bulls may take their chances on an advance beyond the 102.00 mark”.
