USD/JPY - 107.03.. Dlr remained on the back foot in Asian trading after initial break of yesterday's 107.04 (New York) low to 106.97 as renewed broad-based weakness in the usd prompted short-term specs to sell the pair for stop hunting.
The lack of a rebound from said intra-day 106.97 trough suggests market is keen to test dlr's downside after price hit a 6-week peak of 107.78 on Friday and the path of least resistance in the meantime is down, so selling dlr on recovery is the way to go.
Offers are tipped at 107.10/20 n more above with some stops above 107.40.
Some bids are noted at 106.90/80 with some stops below there, however, more sell stops are touted below 106.60.
