Abe shooed away USD/JPY bulls

FXStreet (Moscow) - USD/JPY sell-off resumed with new strength on Wednesday as the pair dropped from 108.90 towards its current level of 108.55 on the back of Abe’s alleged displeasure with JPY weakening

The downside is weaker than expected

JPY growth was triggered by risk aversive sentiments and some profit taking. While signs of uneven economic recovery in US put USD under selling pressure, USD/JPY downside proved to be unsustainable as the pair dipped to 108.25 on Tuesday only to recover towards 108.84. New Home Sales report published during American hours, might shed more light on the state of somewhat shabby housing market. Expect a period of higher volatility as USD/JPY has seen a strong rally and may be exposed to further profit-takning. USD/JPY retains the bullish tone as long as it trades above 108.20 support. On the upside the nearest resistance is seen at 109.00.
