    FXStreet (Guatemala) - USD/JPY has made a comeback after opening in supply and making its way below the 117 handle. However it is not a convincing bid currently while markets are in risk-off mode in light of the Chinese crisis.

    The Yen has been on the march since 2016 opened, 7 cents or thereabouts in the green while traders, observers and investors put the Fed and dollar to the side in the cash market a flight to safety. However, it will not be long before Central Banks start to comment on the Yen and perhaps while the BoJ's target of 2% inflation is dwindling away while oil is forever declining, the Yen may not be able to run off with the trophy before the dollar comes back into vogue.

    However, technically, there is still some downside to be had. 116.16, the low set in August 2015 is compelling for this week on a break and close below the 117 handle today. Then, the 114.00/113.95 zone cannot be ruled out with a break of the weekly 100 SMA and ahead of the base of the weekly cloud at 113.47.
