USDJPY: Sellers Lose Steam at 78.00 Figure
Prices bounced from support at 77.95, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, to test the 38.2% level at 78.45. A break above that exposes the top of a falling channel set from late June, now at 78.79. Alternatively, a reversal below support targets 77.47. Risk/reward considerations argue against entering a trade at current levels and we will stand aside for now.
