USDJPY is unchanged but remains vulnerable following Friday's sharp sell-off. 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 would add to the current bearish weight and open 104.19, Jul 31 low. On the upside, clearance of 106.95/107.05 is required to reinstate a bullish theme.
