USD/JPY Near Combined Support Levels
June 16, 2013 12:17 am GMT+0 in Chart Alert
USD/JPY weakened further and touched 93.79 during last week. The strong falls bring the bearish outlook but such a consolidation is quite natural after a long uptrend when the pair broke above the strong psychological level of 100.00 and had gone as high as 103.73. Considering this the consolidation has not even completed 38.2% retracement of the upward gains.
