USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Bearish pressure remains unabated despite highly oversold conditions

   •  The pair extended last month's bearish breakthrough a symmetrical triangular formation and a subsequent fall below the very important 200-day SMA.

   •  A follow-through selling below 50% Fibo. level of the 104.63-114.55 upsurge was seen as a key trigger for today's sharp bearish slide to sub-109.00 level.

   •  The set-up clearly supports prospects for an extension of the well-established bearish trend towards testing 61.8% Fibo. level support near the 108.40-35 region.

   •  However, technical indicators on hourly/daily chart point to highly oversold conditions and might turn out to be the only factor that might help limit the downside.
