Regarding a paring of losses that have thus far crippled any upside, resistances for the USD/JPY will activate should the pair reach 99.40, onto 99.85, and finally the psychological 100.00.

Given the BoJ has created the conditions for further yen weakness - through their recent actions and not their words, a shift in government rhetoric in isolation may not be enough to hold back the tide against the JPY.
