Dollar / Yen Plunges Beneath 87-Targets Multi-Decade Low
“To review, everything from the 2009 low appears to be corrective. The 3 wave rally from 8480 is surely corrective, so there is the possibility that the USDJPY continues lower from here and takes out 8480 (which would mean that what was thought to be a b wave triangle would actually be a series of 1st and 2nd waves).” With 8700 being broken, it is wise to abandon the previously held ‘cautiously bullish’ bias. Favor the downside – 8700/60 is resistance.
