Our view was incorrect as USD / JPY fell to 113.63 before rapidly rebounding. Despite the decline, the downside momentum has barely improved and USD / JPY is unlikely to weaken further.

As USD / JPY rallied, in our latest Wednesday narrative (Oct 20, USD / JPY at 114.50), we highlight that ‘focus now It is at 115.00 even though overbought conditions suggest the odds of a sustained advance above 115.00 are not high. ”We were not expecting yesterday’s (Oct 21) sharp drop that tested our“ strong support ”at 113.75 ( Low at 113.63).
