Forex Flash: USD/JPY upside bias remains – Commerzbank

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The Japanese yen is intensifying its weakness on Wednesday, posting multi-year lows against its American counterpart and pushing the USD/JPY to levels well above the 99.00 handle.

The count on the 240 minute chart is suggesting a 96.90/95.30 retracement prior to the next leg up. This up move in the USD/JPY has been typified by shallow corrections. Conclusion – we will attempt small longs here”, explained Karen Jones, Head of FICC Technical Analysis at Commerzbank.
