USD/JPY Technical Analysis: pair is testing 50-hour MA support after descending triangle breakdown

The USD/JPY is trading at the 50-hour moving average (MA) support of 113.44, having suffered a descending triangle breakdown on the 15-minute chart earlier today.

15-minute chart

  • The bears are in a commanding position on the 15-minute chart, courtesy of the triangle breakdown and a deeper drop to 113.14 could unfold if the spot establishes a lower low with a move below 113.42.

Hourly chart

  • As seen above, the pair has created a falling channel for the third time in five days. The previous two falling channel ended with a bull breakout and history might repeat itself if the equities stabilize in Europe, reducing the haven demand for the JPY and the US retail sales, due at 13:30 GMT, blow past expectations.
