CORRECTION: USD/JPY eyes 82.30 to stay bullish - V.Bednarik (San Francisco) - USD/JPY printed a fourth day of lower lows but again finished unchanged in the 82.10 price zone at the NY close after recovering from 81.68 daily low. Yesterday’s price behavior resulted in a daily Pin, which is encouraging for bulls looking for buy-on-dips opportunities in the midst of broad JPY weakness.

“In the 4 hours chart indicators lost their bearish tone and turned back north, still standing below their midlines: price needs to recover at least above [82.30] to see the pair gaining more bullish track this Thursday,” says Valeria Bednarik, Chief Analyst at

USD/JPY last trades at 82.05 in early Asia.
