USD/JPY: Last Thursday’s violent pullback certainly dents our shift in outlook in which we had been projecting significant upside over the medium-term. However, the market has still not managed to close below 89.00 and it will be interesting to see how things play out from here. In some ways, the recent whipsaw price action makes it a little easier to call. A break back below 88.55 will confirm bearish resumption, while above 91.30 should accelerate gains to the topside and put the constructive outlook back in play. Until then we remain sidelined.
