    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The USD/JPY pair was pushed to a ten-day low of 119.55 as the activity in the S&P futures indicate a bout of risk aversion on the Wall Street ahead.

    Trades below 38.2% retracement

    A minor recovery ahead of the US session ran into offers at the 38.2% Fib R of 125.86-116.08 levels, after which the pair fell to a session low of 119.55. The bid tone on the safe haven JPY gathered pace as the S&P 500 futures dropped 0.5%.

    Moreover, the stocks exposed to China and Europe are likely to witness losses and keep the Yen and other traditional safe haven assets n demand. It remains to be seen if the pair finally witnesses a bearish break from the symmetrical triangle formation seen on the daily chart since mid-September.
