SAR still trailing the falling USD/JPY rate

We see an injection of volatility in the already heavy looking USD/JPY pair.

The washout in today's trading has expanded the Bollinger® bandwidth indicator for four consecutive hours beyond the maximum width seen in a week of trading. Moreover, the same 1hr charts show recent close prices printing below the 50-period EMA, a bearish condition that should it persist, would help keep the SAR indicator trailing above the price.

A change of direction would be quickly noticed by the SAR, implying USD/JPY shorts are taking profit. Risks exist the volatility and the plummeting price action extend to higher time frames.
