USD/JPY:The latest violent drop-ff to fresh record lows by 76.35 has been intense, with the market threatening a fresh longer-term downside extension below 80.00. However, given the nature of the move, we would not at this point categorize the downside break as anything significant that alters the medium-term outlook. For now, the sidelines are the best place to be and we will look to see where the market closes this week to gain a clearer perspective. A weekly close below 79.00 might open a retest of the 76.35 spike lows, but any additional declines below 76.00 are seen limited. Back above 81.20 is required to take the immediate pressure off of the downside.
