Chart set up: The USDJPY currency pair was bearish last week as price action was seen extending declines strongly. The declines came mostly due to the prevailing market sentiment. With weak sentiment, the risk averse mode pushed the yen higher as a result.
Key support/resistance levels:
Support: 106.93; Resistance: 110.26
The decline to the newly formed support at 106.93, saw the USDJPY currency posting a quick rebound. Of course, this came after the USDJPY fell sharply to intraday lows of 105.01 before pulling back higher. The rebound off 106.93 has sent the USDJPY briefly higher. But we expect this gain to be short-lived. In the near term, the currency pair is quite likely to retest the support at 106.93. As long as this support holds, the currency pair could be seen trading flat. To the upside, the USDJPY will need to break past the falling trend line, followed by the test of resistance at 110.26. The USDJPY could be seen trading flat.
