USDJPY sold off sharply Friday closing near session lows. In pattern terms, Friday is a bearish engulfing candle and highlights a potential bearish threat. The pullback exposes key near-term support at 105.10, Aug 19 low. A break of this level would add to the current bearish weight and potentially set the scene for a move towards 104.19, Jul 31 low. On the upside, a break of 106.95/107.05 is required to reinstate a bullish theme.
