USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Bears attack 100-HMA support

  • The USD/JPY has dipped below the 200-hour moving average (200-HMA) support of 111.00 and could drop further if the equity markets in Europe and America report losses.
  • As of writing, the S&P 500 futures are flatlined. Further, the 14-hour relative strength index (RSI) is reporting oversold conditions. As a result, the pair could trade in a sideways manner around 111.00 for the next few hours.
  • The support at 110.59 (July 26 low) could be put to test if the ratings agency Fitch downgrades Italy, sending stock markets lower across Europe.
