Technical analysis of USD/JPY for October 12, 2017


USD/JPY is expected to trade with a bearish outlook. The pair broke below the support level of 112.60 and broke below its 20-period and 50-period moving averages. In addition, the bearish cross between 20-period and 50-period moving averages has been identified. The relative strength index lacks upward momentum.
