    FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/JPY has turned around on its head despite a good result in the headline in nonfarm payrolls that had the yen on the back foot by over a cent to the greenback on the knee jerk.

    As the session goes by, the greenback has been sold-off across the yen and euro, strong vs the pound and antipodeans in the main. The S&P is falling and making fresh lows and the lowest levels since Oct last year and that too will underpin Yen strength.

    Technically, Karen Jones, chief analyst at Commerzbank explained that the outlook is looking increasingly negative short term and at this stage we are unable to rule out losses back to the 114.00/113.95 zone, this the 23.6% retracement of the entire move up from the 2011 low. "Please note the base of the weekly cloud lies at 113.47."
