“The downwards pressure on USD is also showing in USD/JPY which continues to trade on a heavy note. In the short term, we still see risks skewed to the downside for USD/JPY and EUR/JPY amid choppy market conditions and stretched short JPY positioning. Technically, next key support level in USD/JPY is seen at 106.51. Watch out for a reaction from the Bank of Japan, which seems to be the only place where USD/JPY could find some support at the moment.”
