Diminishing downside momentum coupled with oversold conditions suggest limited risk to the downside. for USD / JPY. For today, USD / JPY is likely to consolidate and trade between 109.10 and 109.70. “

Despite falling below 109.30 yesterday (September 21, September), the downside momentum has not improved much.
