Strategy: Flat

USDJPY put in a bearish Shooting Star candlestick below resistance at 78.20 and moved lower, with sellers working their way through support in the 77.33-77.48 region. The risk/reward profile of the setup argues against entering short at current levels with prices squarely at support and we will stand aside for now.
