USD/JPY technical Analysis: Breaks below an ascending trend-line despite risk-on mood

   •  Despite improving risk-sentiment, the pair struggled to build on its recovery move from flash crash lows and faced rejection near 100-hour SMA.

   •  Sustained breakthrough ascending trend-line support, held since the last Asian session on Thursday and was seen as a key trigger for bearish traders. 

   •  Technical indicators on the 1-hourly chart have already started gaining negative momentum, further reinforcing the intraday bearish breakdown. 

   •  A follow-through weakness below 50-hour SMA might turn the pair vulnerable to resume its prior depreciating slide and retest support near mid-107.00.
