Forex: USD/JPY recovery attempt stalls

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The USD/JPY had been steadily paring losses Monday, having fallen to the depths of 93.27 during European trading. However, a second recovery attempt subsequently stalled at the 93.81 level, leading the pair to retrace back to 93.64/70 in these moments, down -0.65%.

“The breakout below the medium-term ascending support triggered the extension of the USD/JPY downside correction targeting now areas of 92.05 and 91.50 at least. The bearish outlook remains valid in the near-term.” warns the ICN.com analyst team.

After breaking support at 94.03, Mataf.net analysts point to corrective measures of support ahead at 93.77, then 93.60. Regarding a further paring of losses, resistances for the USD/JPY will trigger at 94.47 onto 94.63 and ultimately 94.90.

In the United States, Markit Manufacturing PMI (March) came in at 54.6, against expectations of 54.9, and compared with 54.3.
