USDJPY sagging but it’s all down to the dollar this time

Yesterday yen buying and then the Chinese news helped send USDJPY down to a low of 111.27, and we’re not far from there now, with a low put in at 111.32.

There’s nothing that stands out at this level bar it being around the old 38.2 fib of the Aug 2016 rally. I’m not one to take too much notice of old fibs, and we’ve only seen fleeting moments when this area has been S&R. Still, ours is not to reason why, ours is but to sell or buy.

The 111.30 level could become important short-term if we see it hold again. That would suggest that we have a strong bottom in place meaning we should get another run up towards 112.00. For today, the intraday range has moved from 111.55/80 to 111.30/55, and like that level, traders just need to go with the flow.
