USDJPY remains under pressure today as the market reacts to news that Abe will resign. Earlier, the pair traded higher in Asia touching 106.95. The pullback has instead resulted in a breach of yesterday's low of 105.61 and exposes key near-term support at 105.10, Aug 19 low. A break of this support would add to the current bearish weight and potentially expose 104.19, Jul 31 low. A break of 106.95/107.05 is required to reinstate a bullish theme.
