Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT

The USDJPY has bounced from the confluence of the 61.8% retracement of the rally from 7637 and short term channel support. A deeper retracement of the advance cannot be ruled out, especially in light of the pattern in the long bond, which may rally into the middle of this week. In the event of additional weakness, support comes in at 7825. Trading above the short term channel would suggest that a bottom is in place.
