The USDJPY short-term bearish threat remains in place. Tuesday's weakness saw prices test and show below key short-term support at 112.73, Nov 9 low before prices improved ahead of the close. A clear break would open 112.08 next, a recent breakout level. On the upside, initial resistance is seen at 114.03, the 20-day EMA. A break would ease the bearish threat. Key resistance though is unchanged at 115.52, the Nov 24 high.
