FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/JPY is consolidating early Asian losses caused by overall USD weakness. The pair has settled around 101.50 level.



Bears try to regain control

From the technical point of view, the failure at the above said minor resistance level strengthens the short-term bearish case for USD/JPY, the pair needs to overcome strong demand located in 101.50/40 area to get a chance for a deeper move to the the next support area of 101.10/00, where strong bids coupled with stops are likely to limit the downside for the time being.
