USD/JPY testing the downside but supported

FXStreet (Barcelona) - USD/JPY is trading at 106.90, down -0.09% on the day, having posted a daily high at 107.13 and low at 106.85.

USD/JPY is holding up on the offer through the 107 handle as buyers came in and supported the downside. The pair penetrated the handle on a slide that leaves the pivot exposed as next solid line of defence. The JPY has been boss of the pair while it continues to fail through the 107 handle despite a good performance in the US on Wall Street overnight. 107 is the main hurdle at this juncture while to the downside, the pivot 106.76 is the back stop ahead of a potentially painful drop. US CPI is due and it is likely that such an event would be required in order to see a significant shift out of current range.
