The trend direction in USDJPY remains down and this week’s gains are considered corrective. The 20-day EMA has been tested. A firmer resistance is seen at the 50-day EMA that intersects at 133.38. A clear break of this EMA would highlight a stronger reversal. On the downside, the bear trigger has been defined at 129.64. A break would resume the downtrend and open 129.12, the Feb 2 low.
