USDJPY bearish concerns receded somewhat last week following gains on Aug 19. In pattern terms, activity on Aug 19 is a bullish engulfing reversal candle. If correct, the pattern signals a near-term base has been established at 105.10. An extension higher would refocus attention on the 107.05 key resistance, Aug 13 high. Sub 105.10 levels however would once again highlight a bearish threat and open the major support at 104.19.
