  • Bears are moving in on the 135.80 psychological support. 

 As per the prior multi-timeframe analysis from the Tuesday New York session, USD/JPY Price Analysis: Bears are lurking and a significant correction could be on the cards, a topping formation was highlighted on the 5-min chart:

The price subsequently melted and the bear's committed to the M-formation on the 10-min chart as illustrated in the prior analysis:

If the bears commit at this juncture, then the 36.2% Fibo may be confirmed as a strong enough correction:

As illustrated, the price moved in for an accurate test of the target and surged higher from there before melting once again to print fresh lows of 135.68 which leaves lower levels, 135.00/10, as per the original analysis, on the cards for the sessions ahead:

However, so long as they do, then the upside is still to play for longer-term.
