USDJPY trend conditions remain bearish. The pair is trading below last week’s high of 131.58 and the 20-day EMA, at 130.98. Recent activity appears to be a bear flag formation, reinforcing the downtrend. A break lower would open 126.81, a Fibonacci projection - the bear trigger is 127.23, the Jan 16 low. On the upside, clearance of 131.58, the Jan 18 high, would be a bullish development and signal scope for a stronger correction.
