Technical analysis of USD/JPY for September 22, 2017


USD/JPY is expected to trade with a bearish outlook. The pair retreated from 112.75 and broke below its 20-period and 50-period moving averages. In addition, the 20-period moving average crossed below the 50-period one. The relative strength index is showing downside momentum.
