DAILY MARKET OUTLOOK on Major
Update Time: 15 Aug 2019 09:30 GMT

USD/JPY - 106.20
Despite dollar's brief jump to 106.78 at European open, subsequent retreat suggests further choppy trading inside recent broad range 105.06-106.97 would continue with downside bias and below 105.66 would yield 105.30/40, where break would bring re-test of Monday's fresh 7-month bottom of 105.06. 

On the upside, only above 106.78 would risk stronger retracement towards 106.97, then possibly 107.09.
