Talking Points

The USD/JPY is now declining off of its high of the day at 105.93. As prices turn lower, traders should note that this week’s rally has still failed to breakout above the June 23rd high at 106.82. If price action fails to find short term support, it may open up the USD/JPY to return back towards critical values of support. This includes intraday support at 105.25, daily price support near 104.00, and ultimately the July low at 99.98.
