  • MNI Techs: USDJPY traded lower Thursday and cleared support at 103.18. Nov 6 low. This confirms a resumption of the underlying downtrend that started late March. The next objective is set at 102.75, the 1.00 projection of the Oct 7 - Nov 6 down leg from the Nov 11 high. Further out the break lower opens 102.00 and below. Nov 6 low. On the upside, initial resistance is at Thursday's high of 103.56. Upticks are considered corrective.
