Technical analysis of USD/JPY for April 17, 2018


USD/JPY is expected to trade with a bearish outlook. The pair is trading within a bearish channel drawn from last Friday (April 13). It is currently testing the key level of 107.00 on the downside, as the 20-period and 50-period moving averages are badly oriented.
