USD/JPY remains trapped within a narrow trading band as a Dark Cloud Cover pattern awaits confirmation. If confirmed by a successive down day and a close under the 108.00 floor a deeper correction to the 107.00 floor may ensue. However, some skepticism over a continued pullback may be warranted – given recent reversal signals have been met with some disdain by traders.
