USDJPY remains vulnerable following Friday’s sharp sell-off. The move lower resulted in a break of support at 113.59, Nov 19 low. This highlights a stronger short-term bearish threat and the pair is testing the 50-day EMA at 113.21. This average represents an area of trend support and a clear break would strengthen a bearish case and expose 112.73, Nov 9 low. Key resistance has been defined at 115.52, the Nov 24 high and is the bull trigger.
